Don’t Get Burned!

 by Charles R. Swindoll

Bad company corrupts good morals. —1 Corinthians 15:33
 Compromise never works. We always get burned. Even though we rationalize around our weak decisions and tell ourselves that wicked associations really won’t harm us (“they’ll get better, our good will rub off their bad!”), we get soiled in the process.

 If you put on a pair of clean white gloves on a rainy day and then go out into the backyard to the flowerbed and pick up a glob of mud, trust me, the mud will never get “glovey.”

 The gloves will definitely get muddy. Every time.

 In all my sixty-plus years on earth, I have never seen glovey mud. Not once.

 In simple terms, that’s what  1 Corinthians 15:33  is saying: “Do not be deceived: ‘Bad company corrupts good morals.’”

    We can really get burned by compromise. It usually weakens our resolve and tarnishes our reputation. This is why the Lord tells us not to be unevenly yoked with a non-believer spouse. It can be deadly at its worst; and become a source of weariness at its least.
