A Fine Line ______________________________


“There is a fine line between right and wrong.  A fine line between observation and participation.  A fine line between hot/cold and lukewarm.  Crossing over does not begin by an initial motion of physical action.  It begins in the heart; in the mind.  The physical action follows what the heart and mind have already set into motion.

The little song that is sung in Sunday school, “Oh, be careful little eyes what you see. Oh, be careful little ears what you hear.”    . . .  The warning signs that a door as been left ajar for the enemy to walk in and take up residence begins with just a smidgen of compromise that comes across as innocence.  A book, a movie, a song, etc., many avenues for compromise.

God’s word talks about guarding our hearts, our minds so that we do not fall into a place that is too deep that we can not escape.  We must guard our hearts/minds in order that we may truly walk in holiness, righteousness, purity, and God’s authority.   Some may say that these jewels of God are ridiculous to obtain.  However, when a person has seen evidence of others truly walking in this area, testament of His living jewels, the mouth will shut up quit quickly.

The road to obtain these jewels is tough, but it is not impossible.”

    @ Jennifer, I believe you’re right that compromise “begins in the heart; in the mind. The physical action follows what the heart and mind have already set into motion.” It reminds me of the familiar cartoon image of an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other, with each doing their best to an individual to choose their way.

    Romans 10:10–For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
