Luxury Prisons

Updated on September 4, 2015

A random thought associating with the scripture Proverbs 14:12

How many of us has been in a situation where we became comfortable in our sins? I know I have and it nearly destroyed my life. Here is a food for thought and I hope you take it to heart.

I read Proverbs 14:12. It says "There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.
I've realized we as people create Luxury Prisons for ourselves. We call it Home but never realizing that we are putting ourselves in a trap. We have King Size bed with many blankets and luxury soft pillows, 2 sectional sofas that come with a recliner and a cup holder. 50 Inch flat screen T.V for entertainment, Office ...Desktop computer, Cell Phone and even food. The door is wide open for you to invite family, friends, lovers, even complete strangers. We party and have FUN. We become so COMFORTABLE until one day the prison you call home locks on you. You try to find a way out but realized it's too late.

1. We think it’s ok to steal as long as we don’t get caught.

2. We think it’s ok to lie.

3.. We think it’s ok to talk dirty and have a perverse thought.

4. We think it’s ok to gossip.

5. We think it’s ok to have sex outside of marriage.

6. We think it’s ok to watch pornography.

7. We think it’s ok to drink till we’re drunk.

8. We think it’s ok to smoke.

9. We think it’s ok to curse.

10. We think it’s ok to hate someone and mistreat them.

11. We think it’s ok to not forgive.


In Roman 14:12, it says, “So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God.

In Matthew 12:36, it says, “But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgement for every empty word they have spoken.


At the end of the day, everything on earth will pass away and you will be standing by yourself on judgement day.
God LOVES YOU so Much that he sent his ONLY son to die on the cross for you and me. He did it so that we wouldn’t have to perish in Hell but have everlasting life.


Romans 10: 9 says, “If thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and shall believe in thine heart that God has raised him from the dead, thou shalt be SAVED!

Don’t wait for tomorrow because tomorrow is never promised.

ROMANS 8:1-39

Matthew 12:36 - But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgement............

      Not everyone believes it's ok to do the things you listed, I know I don't. I believe in treating others as you would want to be treated. ( The golden rule. ) It is true we have too many luxuries in our home's. We are a spoiled generation. Thought provoking hub....
