Didn’t mean to. But…

After reading the post below, consider how you may end up playing with temptation, yet didn’t mean to.  It’s the evaluation of activities we shouldn’t do..
The subtle beginnings of self-indulgence!
(J.R. Miller)We do many things which to our own eyes appear innocent and harmless–but which have in them a hidden evil which we cannot see.

We indulge ourselves in many things which do not appear sinful to us–but which leave on our soul a touch of blight, and a soiling of purity–of which we do not dream!

We permit ourselves many little habits in which we see no danger–but which are silently entwining their invisible threads into a strong cable which may some day bind us hand and foot!

We spare ourselves self-denials and sacrifices, thinking there is no reason why we should make them, unaware that we are lowering our standard of holy living, and permitting the subtle beginnings of self-indulgence to creep into our hearts!

“Blessed is the man who does not . . .
walk in the counsel of the wicked,
or stand in the way of sinners,
or sit in the seat of mockers!”
Psalm 1:1

From Grace Gems

It is sin…
Do you know yourself?
