Compromise can be one of the best things in the world and one of the worst. Knowledge without wisdom is useless. If you have knowledge but yet not the wisdom to know where & when to use the knowledge, what good is it?
Compromise is very important in a marriage, relationships, at work etc. When dealing with other people and their feelings, to a healthy degree compromise is necessary. Today we’re not going to talk about healthy compromise, we’re going to talk about when compromise can become dangerous. There are things in this world that are right or wrong, black or white and there is no in between. If you really examine it, sometimes people advocate for the “gray area” because it justifies the way they want things to go.
There are something’s in this life that absolutely can’t be compromised. What those things are to you personally, only you will know because the core of them comes from your own personal beliefs and value system. Sad but true, most people aren’t even sure what they believe. Haven’t you ever heard the saying “if you don’t stand for something you’ll fall for anything”? Have your feet firmly planted so that you won’t get washed away by the storms in life.
There is one thing though, that cannot and will never be compromised and that is the truth.
New American Standard Bible
For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
King James Bible
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Something’s are right, something’s are wrong. This is not a free pass to insult or disrespect anyone, but by all means there is never a dollar amount, man or woman, material object, or fears of what people might say or think about you that is a good enough excuse for us to compromise the truth.
