The late humorist Lewis Grizzard once said, “I am by no means trying to condone adultery, but the fact is, it’s one of the most popular of the Ten Commandments to break. Who goes around making graven images today?”
Some sins do indeed seem to be more popular than others. It has always been that way. From ancient times, we see in the Bible that people gave in to the same temptations that plague mankind today. Sinful behaviors that we see today are certainly nothing new.
The fact that sinful temptations are an on-going occurrence means that we must be ever diligent to resist them. Don’t ever let down your guard!
“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”—James 4:7.
