Sin is Contrary to Growth

Written by Joe Dardano

In Romans 6:23 we read that, “the wages of sin is death.” Death gives no second chances. Once sin is committed, the consequences flow. They flow outward into our lives, affecting ourselves and those around us. There are no accidents. Things happen for a reason. It is a universal law that when sin is committed, the negative results penetrate into our world to cause damage somewhere, like the effects of a nuclear explosion. We do not see the destructive forces moving about, but we then witness the results of people falling sick, succumbing to disease and dying. When a bomb explodes, humans cannot push a button to stop the flow of destruction. Same with sin. Once sin is committed, it does its destructive work. This teaching should inspire us to stay close to God every moment of the day. Holiness should be our daily striving. As we keep our hearts close to Christ, we embrace life in its fullest. Embracing life means having an attitude of growth and evolving into a better human being on a daily basis. Sin is contrary to growth; it tears things apart: “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!” (Deut. 30:19)
