1 Thessalonians 5:24 God who calls you, is faithful; he will do this.
Compromise! That is a word to ponder. The question is "How do I compromise"? When do I compromise? Is my compromising led by the Holy Spirit or do I allow the friendships of others and "peace at all costs" contribute to my compromising?
- Never compromise the Word of God!
- Never compromise the Lord's integrity!
- Never compromise the Lord's intention for your life!
- Never compromise the safety of yourself or others!
With all of that said, I don't believe there should be much compromising in my life. Yes, I might compromise on my favorite place to eat--compromise the quiet bliss of our home and enjoy our grandchildren--compromise the length of my vacation to be in family's presence--compromise visits to the beach or allotted time I would rather be alone.
Those are the compromises people do not see or hear about. Those compromises are between me and God.
You might consider the compromises in your life. You will find that God is faithful to meet you in those areas and produce much joy in your innards. You will be surprised that these compromises are not compromises at all. They are acts of sheer love for God expressed to others through you and me!
That is my prospective for today. On another day I may change my mind or add to the list!
