Stay Away from Sexual Sins

I am allowed to do anything,
But not all is helpful to me;
For what I desire to cling,
The Lord might not want me to see.

All things are still lawful for me,
But not all is of a concern;
Because of what God may decree,
Not as what I have tried to learn.

For what a harlot wants to show,
Could bring out the wrong temptation,
And not what God wants you to know,
That might cause you complications.

For the body is for the Lord,
And is not made for sexual sin;
If this is completely ignored,
Then you have corrupted within.

Your body is only on loan,
For it belongs to the Spirit;
Doing what God does not condone,
Cause to lose what you inherit.

The Holy Spirit lives in you,
And helping you out through each day;
By doing what you are not to;
Makes the Spirit to go away.
