Don’t Take The Bait
Ever notice how sometimes there is something or someone enticing? It’s like fishing. When you fish, you use flashy lures and bait that will attract your prey. The thing is that fish can be smarter than the fisherman. Just because there is bait there doesn’t mean that the fish has to take it. Cause guess what! There’s other food out in that water. That fish survived without that bait. It can keep on surviving. The thing the fish needs to remember is that if it takes that bait there is the chance of death. Actually death is almost certain. But if the fish refuses the bait and keeps on surviving on its own, life can keep on happening. It may not be an easy life, but it is still life. The odds of living are much higher by leaving that bait alone.
Think about that when temptation comes your way. Is it really something good or is it just bait for something bad? I have learned to look at things that way. It’s a real eye opener.
