Count The Cost
Numbers 22:18 – But Balaam answered them, “Even if Balak gave me his palace filled with silver and gold, I could not do anything great or small to go beyond the command of the Lord my God.” (NIV 1978)
My Musing – No gain can compensate us for going against God’s will. That price is too high.
My Advice – There will be times that you will be tempted to do things that you know are not right, whether in your career or your personal life. The pay-offs may seem spectacular (possessions, power, position, prestige) and well worth the risk. They are not. Obedience, morality and staying true to your character, a child of God, is much more valuable.
