Nature Of Sin

Sin is such a deceiver. The devil does his best to make it look attractive to folks. If that wasn’t the case, nobody would want to sin. I head a preacher use this illustration of the fly and the spider web and turned it into a poem.

Write At Home

Nature of Sin

 

The young housewife with

the basket of dirty laundry in

her arms hears the annoying drone

of a fly as she walks toward

the washer.

 

Just above the slop sink is

a new spider’s web that wasn’t

there last week. The sun peeks

through the garage window, shining

directly on the web, causing each

silky strand to shimmer.

 

As the fly circles the web

repeatedly,

this housewife realizes the

magnificent beauty of a spider’s

home has this fly

MESMERIZED.

And as a spectator, she too

is mesmerized.

 

Eventually, the fly comes

too close to the web and

buzzes frantically,

ensnared by the

dazzling deathtrap.

 

After completing her task,

the young housewife

returns to her house

convinced that

some sermons are too powerful for words.
