But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin Hebrews 3:13 KJV

But instead warn (admonish, urge, and encourage) one another every day, as long as it is called Today, that none of you may be hardened [into settled rebellion] by the deceitfulness of sin [by the fraudulence, the stratagem, the trickery which the delusive glamor of his sin may play on him]. Amplified

Wow… I know this song has been around a while, but just considering the lyrics.

Sin takes us each further down a path than we ever intended. Before we come to realization of exactly how far, many times it has hijacked us, binding us and holding us prisoner by shame, guilt, and we are on a path we never expected to find ourselves on.

May I encourage you my Christian Brother/Sister. Don’t give sin the 2nd glance, the lingering thought, … It’s not worth it. A simple seemingly innocent sin soon grows without comprehension and destroys one’s integrity, relationships and hurts us as well as others.

Slow Fade- by Casting Crowns
(Lyrics below)

Be careful little eyes what you see

It’s the second glance that ties your hands as darkness pulls the strings

Be careful little feet where you go

For it’s the little feet behind you that are sure to follow

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away

It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray

Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid

When you give yourself away

People never crumble in a day

It’s a slow fade, it’s a slow fade

Be careful little ears what you hear

When flattery leads to compromise, the end is always near

Be careful little lips what you say

For empty words and promises lead broken hearts astray

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away

It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray

Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid

When you give yourself away

People never crumble in a day

The journey from your mind to your hands

Is shorter than you’re thinking

Be careful if you think you stand

You just might be sinking

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away

It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray

Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid

When you give yourself away

People never crumble in a day

Daddies never crumble in a day

Families never crumble in a day

Oh be careful little eyes what see

Oh be careful little eyes what you see

For the Father up above is looking down in love

Oh be careful little eyes what you see
