Jehovah’s standards can protect us. To benefit from them, however, we must treasure them in our heart. (Pr 7:3) When a servant of Jehovah allows his heart to turn aside, he becomes vulnerable to Satan’s smooth and deceptive tactics. Proverbs chapter 7 describes a young man who allowed his heart to deceive him. What can we learn from his mistakes?

  • Satan tries to draw us away from Jehovah by using our five senses to induce us to get involved in wrongdoing

  • Wisdom and understanding will help us to perceive the devastating effects of wrongdoing and to stay far away from spiritual danger
