“For evils beyond number have surrounded me; my iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to see; they are more numerous than the hairs of my head, and my heart has failed me.” (Ps 40:12)
Sin is a bacteria. If left unchecked, it will grow and reproduce itself exponentially. One lie leads to another lie. One act of fornication calls us to the next one. Sin is like greed, it is never satiated and before you know it, you are surrounded by your sins and the effects.
Starve the sin out. Kill it early and examine your character often. Integrity protection is better than consequence management.
“But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.” (Jas 1:14-15)
