As I was checking out at the grocery store, my eye got caught and lust practically took over.
A Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.
For me, these little goodies are not profitable. Money I shouldn’t spend. Sugar I shouldn’t deposit. Habits quicker getting into than out. Plus, my wife, being allergic to chocolate, probably shouldn’t kiss lips which have given such entry.
For me, even thinking of a candy is foolish. For me. Maybe not for you. We might each have our own foolish thoughts.
And foolish thoughts lead to foolish deeds. That’s probably why Prov 24:9 tells me:
The thought of foolishness is sin
Also, in 2Cor 1:5, I am told to throw away such imaginative thoughts, bringing into captivity every thought for Christ’s sake.
Foolish thoughts, when given their course, lead to foolish deeds.
In plain, “Pthu to Sin!” and away with foolish thoughts.
