The multi-millionaire swaggers up to the beautiful red head, and says, “Would you spend the weekend with me at the Hilton for a million dollars?” With her best alluring smile she answered, “Oh, yes, that sounds so divine!” He said, “How about the motel across the street for a twenty dollar bill?” “What do you think I am?” was her insulted response. “Oh, I know what you are. I just don’t know your price,” he replied.
Today I’m continuing my thoughts from yesterday “What price for my soul? I’m shocked as I read a news article telling about a woman who had been convicted of embezzling $6000 dollars from her employer. Prison for $6000!? Or, I’m surprised to find out a friend is in all kinds of legal trouble because he lied on his income tax to save $2100. Or, I think, “Ms CEO, why would you risk your reputation and business for so little gain.”
These thoughts bother me. They make me judge myself. You see, there is an implication in each of these statements that I understand, or even might participate in the action – if the price were right. I am so thankful that God does not allow us to be tempted beyond our ability to be victors in Him!
