CURIOSITY KILLED THE CAT
The woman answered the serpent: ?We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden, it is only about the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden that God said, ?You shall not eat it or even touch it, lest you die.? ? Genesis 3:2-3
The biggest mistake that the woman makes here is to enter into dialogue with the devil. No good can ever come of such a thing so it is far better and more prudent to walk away from the devil and leave him alone. If we do not listen to him, he will not have a chance to convince us of his lies. This sounds like a simple proposition but reality and experience seem to evidence the fact that it is not so simple to do. Perhaps we should seek to be more alert to the lies of the devil around us so that we are better able to choose which conversations to enter into and which ones to leave alone.

God?s special verse/thought for me today________________
Thank You Lord for: ____________________________________
READ THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR Numbers 26-28
SOMETIMES IT IS WISER NOT TO SPEAK!
There is an old saying, ?Discretion is the better part of valor.? Today?s First Reading is a perfect illustration of this in that Eve would have been much better off ignoring the serpent and walking away. There is no doubt that sin and the devil do not play fairly. The Church recommends that we NEVER enter into dialogue with the devil as he is capable of almost anything. About the only thing we are sure that is beyond his powers is to act with humility.
