– Proverbs 1:10-11 (NIV)
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org Temptation is all around us. There are multiple times in a day when we are faced with decisions that will affect other people in a detrimental way.

Don’t give into this conniving, for in the end the plotters only set a trap for themselves by their actions. The wisdom of this proverb is as relevant for us today as when it was first written.
