Come to think of it, maybe eating candy bars can be a bit like sin. Sadly, it sometimes only takes one "bite" of either to head down the slippery slope.
Nevertheless, God knows our weakness.
For he knows our frame;
he remembers that we are dust.
Psalm 103: 14 RSV
But he was wounded and bruised for our sins. He was beaten that we might have peace; he was lashed—and we were healed!
Isaiah 53: 5 TLB
If God is willing to go to all that effort for me, how can I help but try to live within the boundaries He’s set for me?
