Re: Verse reading–1 Peter 4:12-5:11 (day three)
“Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.”  In our admiration for a lion’s power and elegance, we can forget that the animal is a killer.  Likewise, we justify our decisions to sin in order to pursue the power and elegance we think we see.  But it is the devil we pursue, and he is a killer.  The sin you are justifying today you justify to the devil’s sympathetic ears–and you will hear only approval from him.  That sound of approval will build to a roar, and the devil will turn on you without remedy.
