Be Chicken

Joseph ran…and it was the manliest thing in the world to do.  In the book of Genesis, a young man named Joseph is being seduced by his boss’s wife.  So, what does he do?  He sprints like a Jamaican and disappears in a cloud of Egyptian sand.  According to the Apostle Paul, that’s the right way to fight lust.  “Flee from sexual immorality,” Paul encouraged.  Don’t be afraid to just get up and leave.  Tempted at the bar?  Then leave.  Struggling with a movie?  Walk out of the theatre.  Fighting a battle at the beach?  Make like Joseph and leave a cloud of sand behind you.  You will not regret missing a drink, a conclusion, or a few UV rays for the sake of purity.
