(Proverbs 6:10 KJV) Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:
Life throws us curve balls. Some of them are extreme. Most are subtle and sneak up on us. Why is it that we have heard more about things like demon possession in third world countries than we have in America or Europe? Part of it is that Satan knows that it is easier to swell the roster of Hell by slow seduction and sloth than by frontal attacks. We recently heard about another family man who was doing well on TV and got involved in an affair on the side. I don’t know how it is going to work out in his life but he has ruined what he had. I don’t think he left home every morning saying, “I wonder what I can do to ruin my life?” It snuck up on him one little decision at a time.
So? Sometimes compromise is necessary. Half a loaf is better than none unless the cost of the half loaf is your family now and your eternity later.
