“Oh, look at this dress! I wonder how much is it?”
Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When we find something we like at the store, one of the first things we do is look at the price tag.
“Whoa! It looks really cute hanging right there on that rack.”
Nancy: Wouldn’t it be nice if temptation were the same way, if we understood the cost of sin right up front?
If the forbidden fruit had been rotten and crawling with worms, do you think Eve would have taken any? But Genesis tells us, “When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it.”
She acted on her immediate desires without looking at the price tag.
You’ll be faced with a lot of decisions today. Would you ask God to give you discernment? He can help you recognize the cost of sin, no matter how attractive it looks at the moment.
