COMPROMISE

A hunter raised his rifle and took careful aim at a large bear.

When about to pull the trigger, the bear spoke in a soft soothing voice, “Isn’t it better to talk than to shoot?  What do you want?  Let’s negotiate the matter.”

Lowering his rifle, the hunter replied, “I want a fur coat.”

“Good,” said the bear, “that is a negotiable item.  I only want a full stomach, so let us sit down and negotiate a compromise.”

They sat down to negotiate and after a time the bear walked away, alone. The negotiations had been successful.

The bear had a full stomach, and the hunter had his fur coat!

Satan says to you, “Let us negotiate.” But there are some things that cannot be negotiable.  We cannot compromise the God’s truth. Christ and His church deserve our very best and utmost loyalty. Remember, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist [NOT COMPROMISE WITH] stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world” (1 Peter 5:8-9).

Think About It!

Have A Great Day!
