Be Careful What You Pour Into Your Cereal

Have you ever poured Crystal light into your cereal? Well, I did.
Earlier this morning, I was preparing a bowl of raisin bran cereal. I poured the cereal in the bowl then, I opened the refrigerator door and without looking, pulled out what I thought was a gallon of milk. I poured what I thought was the milk and then looked. Instead of milk, I poured some Crystal light on my cereal.
I wasn’t looking… I wasn’t paying attention… And I poured the wrong thing on my cereal. The same thing can happen to us in the Christian life.
The Bible says that Satan is always on the prowl. The apostle Peter said of Satan, “be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (I Peter 5:8).
Satan is always looking for an opportunity to trip us up. And, if we aren’t careful, he can do it. So, we need to watch what we’re pouring into our cereal… We need to be careful about the places we go… We need to be careful about the decisions we make… We need to be careful about the habits we form… we need to be careful about the friends we make…
In our Christian lives, we need to be careful. Pouring Crystal light in my cereal was not really a big deal… But Satan can trip us up in other areas that would be a big deal. Be careful and stay close to Jesus, because Satan is on the prowl. The same can happen to you. Today be careful; watch what you’re doing because Satan is on the prowl.
