Why That Would Never Happen to Me

I'm off to Jacksonville in a few minutes. Pray for them if I find out they've cut this year's budget for family ministry. As tired as I am, I might just speak my mind. I wanted to say something about yesterday's post. There are things that David did that I would never in a million years do. But it's not because I'm holier or more spiritually mature than David.

I like to think that's the reason, but the truth is that a lot of times what keeps me from really sinning big is that I'm afraid of getting caught. I'm afraid of the embarrassment and the exposure. I'm afraid of what I'd lose. I don't sin like that because I'm too self-centered.

If I thought I could get away with it.... I don't even want to think about that.
