2 Samuel 15-16
What happens when sin is not addressed? It gets worse.
David turned a blind eye to Absalom’s murder of Amnon. Without even a hint of repentance on Absalom’s part, David reunited with his son as though nothing had happened. Maybe David thought if he didn’t come down hard on Absalom, Absalom would always be loyal to him, would always love him out of gratitude for the grace his dad had shown him.
What happens when sin is not addressed in our own lives? It gets worse.
One glance at pornography leads to another until it becomes an obsession. One drunken night becomes two, then three until it becomes an addiction. One lingering glance, one sexual fantasy turns into an affair.
You think that sin you are holding on to is no big deal? Think again.
