“My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not” (Proverbs 1:10).
It is a mistake to wait until temptation presents itself to decide whether or not to yield. Temptation will be resisted successfully only by those who have, in advance, without the intense pressure of enticing temptation, made up their minds they will not consent under any circumstance.
A powerful antidote to sin is found in Psalm 1:1-2: “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.”
