Common invitations

The invitation of God and Satan sound quite similar (Pro 9.4-5, 16-17):

Wisdom: Whoever is simple, let him turn in here! To him who lacks sense she says, ‘Come eat of my bread and drink of the wine I have mixed.’

Folly: Whoever is simple, let him turn in here! To him who lacks sense she says, ‘Stolen water is sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.’

Same audience offered food and drink, though one leads to life and one to death. Going all the way back to Eden, the question comes, ‘Who will you listen to, and who will you obey?’ That’s to say, who is your God? To make a promise is one thing, to keep it, well, only the Living God does that.
