A wealthy lady interviewed three men for a chauffer position.
“How close can you get to the edge of a cliff without falling off?” she asked.
The first guy said, “Twelve inches.”
The second guy said, “Six inches.”
The third guy said, “I’ll stay as far from the cliff as I can!” He got the job.
We “manage” sin when staying close to the cliff appeals more to us than staying close to Christ. Spiritual victory is never found along the fuzzy edges of compromise. God calls us to steer clear from the cliff altogether.
