Sin Creates a Slippery Slope
Psalm 26:1 (KJB) A Psalm of David. Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD; therefore I shall not slide.
David was so sure of his spiritual standing with God he sought out for God to judge his life. David knew that he had remained on the narrow path of God choosing not to slid down the “slippery slope” of sin and shame because he desired in his heart to do that which was honorable to God.
Though, choosing to sin would have been pleasurable for a time and palatable to his flesh, David desired to please and honor God by remaining “spiritually steadfast” even as he sojourned in this dark and wicked world. Mankind innately knows the difference between “right” choices, “almost right” choices, and “wrong” choices according to the plumb line of God’s heavenly measurements.
David chose to remain in a right relationship with God rather than “buddy up” to the god of this world, even for a brief moment of pleasure.
