Colossians 3
1 Thessalonians 1

Proverbs 9

SCRIPTURE
13 
The woman Folly is loud;
    she is undisciplined and without knowledge.
14 She sits at the door of her house,
    on a seat at the highest point of the city,
15 calling out to those who pass by,
    who go straight on their way.
16 “Let all who are simple come in here!”
    she says to those who lack judgment.
17 “Stolen water is sweet;
    food eaten in secret is delicious!”
18 But little do they know that the dead are there,
    that her guests are in the depths of the grave.

OBSERVATION
Let's face it, sin can be fun.  I don't think that the Bible ever denies that statement.  Like Solomon says in Proverbs 7:17, Stolen water is sweet; food eaten in secret is delicious." 

UNDERSTANDING
The problem is never the moment of disobedience, it is the aftermath.  You see, the reason God would tell us not to do something is not because He does not want us to have fun, rather it is because He knows that the aftermath is a killer, a destroyer.  I like the description of foolishness that Solomon gives:
Foolishness is loud, brash, calling loudly to come join the party.
Foolishness lacks discipline - not doing what you know you should be doing.
Foolishness acts without getting the full picture - not taking time to do the research.
Foolishness is impatient.
Foolishness does not think past the moment - they simply live in the moment.
Foolishness kills.

LIFE APPLICATION
Don't be a fool.  Think about the effect your actions will have in your relationships with God and others.  Foolishness destroys, wisdom builds up.
Let's be wise.
