Deadly But Beautiful

We run a school for at-risk students. It’s funny how these kids think they can pull one over on us. Today was another failed attempt. We found a beautiful pipe on one of the kids. It wasn’t the end of the world. It was just another opportunity to help them process life through the Word of God.
What was interesting about this pipe was that it was both deadly and very intricate and beautiful at the same time. A tool that could destroy its user was very enticing to the eye. It was the same tactic Satan used with Eve and is still using with us today. He makes sin very pleasurable (Heb. 11:25). He makes the lie very believable.
The only way to see through the pleasure and the lie is with the truths found in the Word of God. We need an outside source to help us see through the beauty to the deadly aspect of the pleasure. I once heard a believer say, “I’ve read the Bible and know how it ends. I don’t need it anymore.” It is not about how it ends tomorrow, it about how it begins to help today.
Bible Impact reading is not about understanding everything you read. It’s about listening to Jesus speak to you. He wants to shine His light on your situation to help you see through beauty of your drug of choice to its deadliness so you can experience life.
