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!
Psa 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
