If Sinners Entice You (Proverbs 1:10)
Date Posted: September 26, 2006

My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent (Proverbs 1:10).

Do you find yourself being pulled into sin or unbiblical thinking through the influence of others? Your journal is a great place to process the truth found in Proverbs 1:10.

Use your journal to explore the following:

Do you have friends, relatives or coworkers who encourage you to sin?

  • How do you respond to them?
  • Have you allowed ungodly influences into your life through the media?
  • Recall and write about a time when you gave into sin as a result of peer pressure. How did it affect your relationship with God and others?
  • Have you confessed your sin, repented, and asked God’s forgiveness? If not, use your journal to do so now.
  • Write a plan for standing against the pressure to sin, and then write a prayer, asking for God’s help and strength to walk in godliness.
  • Consider who can be an accountability partner. Write about what would make him or her ideal.
  • Write a thank-you letter to God for His wonderful gift of forgiveness and grace.
