Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting.  – Prov 31:30

Reflection.  Thieves all have the same goal.  They try to get you to trust them; then they strike.  They can take a lot of time being charming, building up your trust, but once they have it, they act swiftly and then disappear.  Be on guard.

Prayer.  Lord, teach me to be as wise as a serpent, and as simple as a dove.  Deliver me from evil.
