Essential Meaning of compromise
a change that makes something worse and that is not done for a good reason
Even God-loving people can get off track. They begin doing something (sinful) that takes them in a direction they never intended to go.
When we compromise what is right in God’s Word, even something small, it can become a very big thing. If we can’t be trusted even with little then how can we be trusted with anything?
I think of a bank robber. He didn’t start stealing from banks right away. He most likely stole something little. He got away with it and then it only escalated from there. He was dishonest.
In our marriage, we can easily go in the wrong direction that we never in our wildest minds thought we would. Trust, honesty, and staying in God’s Word will keep your marriage going in the right direction.
Compromise, even small, is deadly.
“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. 11 So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? Luke 16:10-11
