my son, do not go along with them, do not set foot on their paths; for their feet rush into evil, they are swift to shed blood.

– Proverbs 1:15-16 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Swiftness is one of the characteristics of sin in the Scripture. Whether it is the adulterous woman in Proverbs 7 who runs to a young man or this depiction of the wicked rushing to shed blood, there is an urgency that sin thrusts upon us. How many decisions did we hastily make that caused us sorrow later on? Sometimes it is better to purposely wait, to walk away, and in so doing, keep away from the paths of wickedness.
