Don’t engage with a deceiver

 Insight and wisdom will always treat us right, unlike one who may look good on the outside but hides cactus spikes under their pretty flower! The lesson that Eve learned in the garden was not to even engage in discussion with the serpent, the master deceiver- you won’t win. This is a lesson for men and women alike…don’t engage with those whose words are too smooth to be true. – Teresa

 Proverbs 7:1-5 (ESV)

7 “My son, keep my words

    and treasure up my commandments with you;

2 keep my commandments and live;

    keep my teaching as the apple of your eye;

3 bind them on your fingers;

    write them on the tablet of your heart.

4 Say to wisdom, “You are my sister,”

    and call insight your intimate friend,

5 to keep you from the forbidden[a] woman,

    from the adulteress[b] with her smooth words.”
