But if you fail to keep your word, then you will have sinned against the LORD, and you may be sure that your sin will find you out. Numbers 32:23
How many of you growing up heard your parents utter the saying "if you play with fire, you'll get burned? " This could literally mean if you were playing around in a campfire you could burn yourself or with matches. It is a deeper warning too that if you are toying with areas of life that are out of bounds in God's big scheme of things, eventually it will backfire on you or in other words you will get burned.
You can run but you can not hide. You lie you must lie again to cover up the first lie. Cheating is wrong. Lying is wrong. Adultery is wrong. Many many more things are written in the Bible that we are told to stay away from. The enemy is tricky and will disguise sin as politically correct or every one else is doing it. Sometimes sinful governments who don't apply God's teaching will make laws condoning sin and saying they are okay. Who you listen is what matters. Do you follow God and His word or do you follow the ways of this sinful world which eventually will pass away?
We are in a war of good and evil, right versus wrong. Do not despair or lose hope because we know the end of the story and God indeed will have victory and is in control. If you have friends of family who are caught up in the world and its' ways more than God's just keep praying for them.
PRAYER: Lord you are good all the time and all the sin going on in a formerly Christian nation does not surprise you. I thank you that you love mankind but are hurt by its' sinful nature. Help my light shine forth in the darkness around me and help the truth set people free. In Jesus' name. Amen.
