The problem with messing up or sinning is not so much about the mess ups themselves, but rather it’s the decision to do so that causes the damage. For example, I can decide to lie, get away with it and ask God’s forgiveness and He will forgive me… consistently. The damage is that now lying has become a viable option that is harder to say no to the next time. The same goes with every other sin in existence. A little bit of yeast makes the whole batch of dough rise. White lies turn into black lies. Lust of the eye turns into lust of the flesh. If you consiciously give sin an inch, it will take a mile. What are you letting ‘slide’ because it’s no big deal, but YOU know it doesn’t please God? Cut it off at the decision stage. Don’t allow it to live inside your mind. Authority in any area is gained one decision at a time. Start deciding better today!
