Yes I can…but should I?
That’s the thought this poor predator should have considered as he lunged for his prey. The long drop he’s about to endure will give him precious seconds to consider the fact that sometimes you have to let opportunities pass you by.
Sometimes God opens doors for us, and it takes wisdom (which we ask of God–James 1) to recognize those doors and to know when to go in. On the other hand, the Devil also opens doors for us. That same wisdom has to be applied so that we can know when not to go in.
Some opportunities are really just cleverly designed traps, laid down by the prince of darkness and father of lies. Exercise caution, due diligence, and prayer, and avoid making a mistake that could cost you dearly.
