To compromise is to make concessions or accommodations for someone or something that does not agree with a prevalent set of standards or rules. In this regard compromise to the things of God is to make concessions and accommodations for things that are not inline with the mind, purpose and will of God. This can be due to pressure from around family, society etc. This is what happens to young ladies that due to the bad influences around them choose to sleep around with old rich and married men because they can help them afford a certain lifestyle even when they know it’s not right.
As believers, we must “see to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ” (Col 2:8)
This is how we flourish and make it in the Kingdom of God. It’s by sticking to the word, and staying the course for us to see and experience the victory that God has set for us.
SCRIPTURE READING: Psalms 92:12(AMP) The [uncompromisingly] righteous shall flourish like the palm tree [be long-lived, stately, upright, useful, and fruitful]; they shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon [majestic, stable, durable, and incorruptible].
DEVOTION PRAYER: Heavenly Father, help us keep the course and run the race set before us uncompromisingly in Jesus’ name amen.
