Like fish who miss baited flies in fast-rushing waters, we can easily fall prey to Satan when we make decisions based on peer-pressure or excited emotions, taught Michael B. Bliss, BYU-Hawaii Vice President for Administration Services, during his devotional address November 4.
“In life, we can swim in any of the waters. We are most safe in waters where we carefully make decisions, not where heightened peer pressure, excited emotions, culture, or friends entice us to try something we know is not right. Invariably, when this happens, a hook is hidden in the temptation and we find that we are deceived,” stated Brother Bliss.
