Looks Can Be Deceiving

Advertisers sure do know how to make food look good to prospective customers. Pictures of luscious meals make people suddenly feel hungry, and often entice them to buy the advertised product.

However, the item purchased usually doesn’t look nearly as yummy as it did in the photo. The fries are overcooked, the pizza is discolored or the burger appears disheveled.

This is how Satan portrays sin. He makes it look tempting, but it doesn’t measure up to what is advertised. The pleasure is never worth the pain it causes.

Whatever the devil is selling, we shouldn’t be buying it!

“Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.”—1 John 2:15-17.
