It doesn’t take much to ruin a life. Look at the police officer in Dallas that shot the man in what she thought was her apartment. Look at the mess Bill Cosby is in. Look at the problem going on to confirm the supreme court judge. Look at the little boy that died in the septa train situation. There is but a step to falling off the cliff for anyone. 1 Cor 10:12. With that being the case, we must get hold of discretion and never let it go. Pro 2:11. Pro 3:21-26.
I don’t know about other churches, but here, we teach that a person cannot be a fake. A person must be 100% genuine, because God will repay. 2 Cor 5:10-11. We teach that one must be doing what he is supposed to be doing all the time. It makes no difference if no one is around; a person is supposed to be where he is entitled to be and not somewhere else.
Let us ask ourselves. Would others approve of what I’m doing? Could I recommend that everyone else do it? Would I be doing it in the presence of family, spouse, children, friends, etc. Am I ashamed for others to know what I’m doing? If so, you aren’t using discretion and you are about to fall off the cliff. Pro 16:18
