S – Proverbs 11:6 “The righteousness of the upright delivers them, but the treacherous are taken captive by their lust.”
O – Living rightly rescues (delivers, saves) you. Living treacherously (deceitfully, unfaithfully) traps you.
A – I want to make an effort to live the way God has called me to and to help others do the same. Grace is not opposed to effort, it is opposed to earning (Dallas Willard).
P – Lord, thank You for living perfectly (Jesus) and taking the penalty I deserve for my treacherous and lustful life. Help me to live rightly today to avoid the consequences for sin in this life.
Would your life be better described as upright or treacherous?
