My Child, If Sinners Try To Entice You, Do Not Consent!

Proverbs 1:10 ​​​​​–15

My child, if sinners try to entice you, ​​​​​​do not consent!
​​​​​​​If they say, “Come with us! ​​​​​​We will lie in wait to shed blood; ​​​​​​we will ambush an innocent person capriciously. We will swallow them alive like Sheol, ​​​​​​those full of vigor like those going down to the Pit. We will seize all kinds of precious wealth; ​​​​​​we will fill our houses with plunder. Join with us! ​​​​​​We will all share equally in what we steal.”
​​​​​​​My child, do not go down their way, ​​​​​​withhold yourself from their path;



Little Pilgrim, the Laws of the Land
Prohibit innocent blood shed;
Many therefore obey it
Yet, in their hearts, they have killed many
Eyes that dart like arrows
Mouths that soil happiness
Evil thoughts that can suffocate brain cells

It would not be enough, Little Pilgrim
That you preserve life and other people’s wealth
Steal not from a brother
Plunder not from a stranger
Having desisted, condemn these
At the top of your lungs
So that you are absolved from the sins of omission
