Some of you may have heard of the fighting game Mortal Kombat. In the game there is a character named Meilna. Upon first appearance she looks beautiful and seductive. However, after approachimg in her she reveals her true self. Underneath her mask she hides her identity as a hideous monster. Then ultimately she goes in for the kill with her "Kiss of Death" murdering her opponent.
In the same way the things of this world look very enticing upon first glance. However when we allow various vices of this world to captivate us we soon realize that we have just had tasted the sweet kiss of death. What once looked so appealing leaves us feeling empty inside. Sin promises the world, but never follows through.
Though the things in this world appeal to our five senses, we are to be led by our sixth sense so to speak. We are to be directed by the Holy Spirit. We must learn to trust and believe that what Jesus has promised us is more fulfilling than anything we seek outside of Him.
We must remeber that the Bible says that when the devil was in Heaven he was the most beautiful of all of God's creations. So why would his traps on this Earth be anything less than beautiful?
And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. 2 Corinthians 11:14
