    Not only hearers of the Word but doers if the word.

    I appreciate the way Soloman warns us how suttle pleasure seeking sins are and no small amount is safe to play with . The hooks are hidden but effective to trap and detour us from Christ's path for us . Any amount of sin detracts our walk with Christ : We must remember sin has a pleasure but the end still is death and Hell ! The wisdom is refrain from all sin and live .

    As I grow in Christ, it is truly a grand experience. Intellectual knowledge has no comparison when it comes to the wisdom that comes from above. I have learnt to separate the two.
