Proverbs chapter 1, beginning at verse 15, “my son, do not walk in the way with them, keep your foot from their path, for their feet run to evil and they make haste to shed blood. Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.”
Who can argue but that birds are a wonder of God’s creation? Designed and enabled by the creator Himself, they have abilities that the rest of us can only dream of. Their instincts enable them to elude the schemes of man to take them captive. We as believers in Christ, are also divinely enabled to live in freedom unless we choose to embrace the crooked reasonings of the fallen society that is all around us. Read Proverbs 1:10-19. If we yield to this fallen world’s greeds and resentments then we are indeed caught in their net.
It’s time to pray.
