Beloved, As I ponder upon the following words of Sirach, I draw upon the wisdom of God and what truth am I to learn from these words. I am reminded that when we take our eyes off of the Creator and the Love of our lives it is like giving our souls to a foreign god whose only intention is temptation. Remaining faithful and true to our God relieves us of every false thing.
Blessings in God the Spirit,
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
“You should not give your soul, in any way, to fornicators, lest you destroy yourself and your inheritance. Do not choose to look around in the streets of the city, nor should you wander along its thoroughfares. Avert your face from an ornate woman, for you should not gaze upon strange beauty. Many have perished because of the beauty of a woman; and by this, desire is kindled like a fire. Every woman who is a fornicator will be trampled down, like the filth in the street.”
Sirach 9:6-10 CPDV
