“The mouth of an adulterous woman is a deep pit; a man who is under the Lord’s wrath falls into it. Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline will drive it far away. One who oppresses the poor to increase his wealth and one who gives gifts to the rich—both come to poverty.” Proverbs 22:14-16
Every believer has to face and overcome the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life. 1 John 2:17. It is the inevitable journey to have victory in the Spirit. We have to be deliberate to remove all lusts from our lives to experience divine liberty in Christ, drawing us away from satan’s snares and schemes. You can cast out all demons and evil spirits but not the flesh. It has to be disciplined and be nailed at the cross to break every ungodly soul ties or even curses of past generations. The Pain of discipline strangely is the best teacher in awakening all morality
For Christian businesses, I have seen many who stand firm from bribery and unethical means to gain favour from rich clients. And God removed all evil and contentious affiliation which eventually build a strong foundation to last over generations. Our God’s plans are always longer, deeper, wider and higher than world’s ways. Praise God!
To God be the glory!
