Everyone has principles they live by, but which are negotiable and which should never be set aside.
Too many Christians compromise the word of God in their lives. The word of God is never up for negotiation. Compromise can be beneficial when it promotes cooperation without sacrificing moral values, the standard of the Bible. When you begin to take a wrong step in a direction that you know is unwise, it can lead to compromise.
The highest way:
Compromise is defined as an agreement or settlement of dispute that is reached by each side making concessions. It also means to accept standards that are lower than desirable. In other words, when you compromise the word of God to do something you want, you are accepting standards that are lower. God’s ways are higher than our ways. His thoughts are higher, better than our thoughts. God’s ways are always the best ways.
Compromising beliefs has caused so much pain for people. It causes regret. Regret is awful! If you have found yourself compromising the word of God for someone or something, repent quickly and purpose to get it right. Change your ways immediately. Then you will see God’s blessing, His help in your life and family.
Some things are negotiable, but never is the word of God. Believe it and act on it (Hebrews 12:10-13).
Just a thought,
