THE BEST SAFEGUARD TO KEEP YOURSELF FROM FALLING INTO THE PIT IS TO STAY AS FAR AWAY FROM IT AS POSSIBLE

Thomas Brooks

ABSTAIN from all appearance of evil!” [1Thess 5:22]

It is our wisest and our safest course to stand at the farthest distance from sin; not to go near the house of the harlot, but to fly from all appearance of evil. “Keep to a path far from her–do not go near the door of her house!” Proverbs 5:8
THE BEST COURSE TO PREVENT FALLING INTO THE PIT – is to keep at the greatest distance from the pit. He who will be so bold as to attempt to dance upon the brink of the pit – may find by woeful experience, that it is a righteous thing with God that he should fall into the pit!

Sin is a plague, yes, the greatest and most infectious plague in the world; and yet, ah! how few are there that tremble at it, that keep at a distance from it!

“If any OCCUPATION or AMUSEMENT or ASSOCIATION is found to hinder our communion with God or our enjoyment of spiritual things – then it must be abandoned. WHATEVER I CANNOT DO FOR GOD’S GLORY must be avoided!
[A.W. Pink]
