Deceitful

 

A group of college professors and administrators held a luncheon meeting in a restaurant. One professor brought along her young son, who amused himself by quietly playing video games.

 

One of the topics for discussion was the teaching of ethics in the classroom. It was suggested that there might be a need for an entire class on ethics. One lady was totally against that idea, saying that it wasn’t necessary to devote a whole class to this topic.

 

Ironically, the same lady who spoke against the need for an ethics class later suggested that the mother charge her son’s lunch to the college!

 

Jeremiah 17:9 says, “The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?”

 

There is a constant battle going on within. The sinful nature battles against the part of us that wants to do the right thing. We humans have a tremendous capacity to rationalize our actions. Therefore, we must never let down our guard! Instead, we must be diligent and not fall prey to self-deception.
