A young boy was sitting on a park bench with his grandfather when a beautiful girl walked by. The boy asked, “Grandpa, is it a sin to look at a pretty girl?”
Grandpa thought for a few seconds before he gave his response. “I suppose you can’t help but notice someone when they walk by. Surely that isn’t a sin! However, it might be a sin if you take a second look.”
“Good!” the boy replied. “Because I’m still on my first look!”
We need to be very careful to resist the various temptations that come our way.
“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 3:15-17.
