Flee from youthful lusts. 2 Timothy 2:22
To flee in Greek means to run to the point of vanishing. You run so far from the temptation that you can’t even see it any more. This truth is so simple, yet so profound! It’s also the area where so many stumble. When faced with temptation, many run a little – but not far enough. You must cut sin off at the root. If you’re weak in certain areas, don’t keep surrounding yourself with the opportunity to stumble. Avoid. Flee. There’s no wisdom in entertaining the thing sent to destroy you. Escape that temptation to the point of vanishing!
