TOPIC: A VIRTUE AND A VICE.

TEXT:

"Brethren, be not children in understanding: howbeit in malice be ye children, but in understanding be men"

(I Corinthians 14:20).

Vice is a conduct or habit viewed as deprave, immoral, or degrading in a person. Vices consistof negative traits in individuals such as drunkenness, gambling, stealing, and lying, while high moral conduct is an evidence of virtue. Little children are so innocent at heart that they do not conceive evil.Indeed theyare Flee vice and embracevirtueconsidered amoral. That is why the scripture tells us to be children in malice.

On the other hand, we must act virtuously in understanding. It would enable us to be prudent, kind, honest, modest, patient, forgiving, humble, kind and loving. Someone with an understanding mind is able to perceive and explain the meaning or nature of things or people. This was why King Solomon asked God to give him an understanding heart in order to rule well. Every student, parent, professional and Church worker needs understanding to function excellently in all things and avoid evil. Child of God, flee vice and embrace virtue. Vices can land you in problems here on earth and finally in everlasting hell fire. Pray for salvation in order to act with understanding always.

CHALLENGE: Virtue is preferable to vice.

PRAYER: Oh God, incline my heart to virtuous thoughts and acts, in Jesus' name.

FURTHER READING: Philippians 4:8; 2Peter I: 5-9.
