Dancing on the Line

Many choose to go through life getting away with as much as possible. While not flagrantly violating rules, they ‘dance on the line.’ We are told to “Stay away from every form of evil” (I Thessalonians 5:22). Yet, many of us stay away from the big violations, while dancing with what we consider to be ‘small’ violations. Sadly, one compromise generally leads to a larger compromise, leading to ultimate failure. Where do you ‘dance on the line?’ Consider avoiding any form of evil.
