Little Compromises Turn Into Big Problems

A business group conducted a study on infidelity in the workplace. Not surprisingly, they concluded that extramarital affairs in the workplace ultimately led to breakdowns in other areas of life.

In other words, if people were being unfaithful to their spouses, they also would pad their business expenses and cut corners in other areas of their jobs. It makes sense, doesn’t it? If someone is willing to take down one wall, then why not kick down other walls too?

Small things become big things.

If you’re willing to cheat on a test in school, then will you also lie on your résumé? And if you’re willing to cheat in school and lie on your résumé, then in what other areas will you be willing to cheat?

Little compromises turn into big problems. Little things turn into big things.

We don’t think about this sometimes. We’ll say, “It’s all right. This is just a minor infraction.” But we’re not thinking about the repercussions yet.

In the Bible we find story after story of lifelong repercussions that came as a result of a single decision. Adam ate of the forbidden fruit, and it cost him paradise. Esau compromised for a single meal and lost his birthright. Samson’s sexual compromises cost him his strength, his eyes, and ultimately his life.

Are there some small areas where you’re making compromises now?

Deal with those, because the Lord is revealing them for your own good. Little compromises turn into big problems.

Jesus said, “If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities” (Luke 16:10 NLT).

In a single moment in time, you can make a decision that affects your entire life!
