Beware of the Sinkhole of Sin!

Sinkholes have been in the news often of late. Predominant in the south, they are still not unheard of in our region. In fact, Pennsylvania is on the list of the states most likely to experience these destructive events of nature (take a moment and watch the video below of a sinkhole doing its thing!).




As I watched this, my mind turned to the destructive nature of something else ... sin! Sin always destroys.  It devours both the inner person and his outer world. How often have you seen a public figure resign from office due to a sinful act(s) of adultery or some sort of embezzlement scheme? What began as a temptation to sin ended up as a "sinkhole" that swallowed up the individual's life.

Friends, sin is subtle. It can sneak up on us and ensnare us. If we give in to it and allow it to continue unchallenged, it will, like the sinkhole in this video, swallow us whole! So, above all else, guard your heart (Proverbs 4:23) AND be sure that you are engaging in accountable relationships in your life (Proverbs 27:17; Hebrews 3:13).
