Proverbs 12:15 – The way of a fool seems right to him…

Proverbs 21:2 – All a man’s ways seem right to him…

Romans 6:21 – What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are now ashamed of? Those things result in death!

Genesis 1:6-8 – And God said, ‘Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water.’ So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. And it was so. God called the expanse ‘sky.’ And there was evening, and there was morning— the second day.

Separate yourself with devotion.Separate yourself with Christian fellowship. Separate yourself with pleasures. Separate yourself on the basis of your weaknesses or the weaknesses of those around you. –Dwayne Terry
