Sin's Promises

From Blog10

Sin promises life,
    but it's dead.
Sin promises a straight path,
    but its path is twisted.
Sin promises light,
    but it's darkness.
It promises wholeness,
    but it's broken.
Sin promises truth,
    but consists of lies.
Sin promises freedom,
    but yields slavery.
Sin promises to take care of people,
    but it eats them up.
Sin promises wisdom,
    but it's foolishness.
Do not let my heart incline to any evil,
    to busy myself with wicked deeds
in company with men who work iniquity,
    and let me not eat of their delicacies!

                --Psalm 141:4 ESV
