Poison ivy climbing a tree.
An oil found in all parts of the plant causes a skin irritation. In some people this can be severe.
What is the solution to poison ivy? Stay away from it and cut it out of your yard when you find it.
It is the same with sin in our life. If we allow sin to remain it will hurt our life and destroy us. We should get rid of sin wherever we find it.
Romans 6:16 "Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness?"
Father, I don't want to stray from your ways. I will seek You each day to guide me. Thank you for your help. Amen
