Such is the way sin is in our lives. If we are living a life strongly in contrast to sin, when we do sin, or when we see sin, it sticks out like a sore thumb. *SIN* it screams. But when our defenses are down, there isn't enough contrast. Perhaps it's the idea that I'll only have one drink. Or one bite of that cake. Next thing we know it's more than one and your sick and ashamed of yourself.
Maybe you're assuring your self that by "friending" your old boyfriend or girlfriend on facebook (just to catch up) that nothing will happen. That casual flirting won't lead to anything else. The lunch date with that cute co-worker will be strictly professional. Suddenly things get gray.
Casting Crowns song "Slow Fade" says "It's a slow fade, when you give yourself away. It's a slow fade as black and white turn to gray." Don't let sin creep into your life turning what you should know is sin into a gray area.
Like my gray hairs, you need to pluck that sin right out of your life. If you don't, before you know it everything will be gray. Don't let sin make you
