COMPROMISE


A hunter went out into the forest to shoot a bear. With winter fast approaching he planned to make a warm coat out of the bearskin. Soon he saw a bear coming toward him, he raised his gun and took aim.


"Wait," said the bear, "why do you want to shoot me?"


The hunter replied: "Because I am cold."


The bear replied "But I am hungry, so maybe we can reach an agreement."


In the end, the hunter was well enveloped with the bear's fur, and the bear had eaten his dinner.


The point: Disobedience (even partial) is sin, and we will always lose out when we try to compromise with sin! It will consume us in the end.
