We need to be good stewards of the things God has given us, but I think many people start off wanting to do the right thing but then get caught up in the façade that what they're building here now is going to last. Let us never forget that the earth is presently under the strategic and tactical control of our great adversary, Satan (1 John 5:19). This whole world is becoming increasingly geared toward making the Christian either compromise or be crushed underfoot altogether. There is no warm, safe, middle ground on this spiritual battlefield. No velvet-padded fences to straddle. We are at war, and if your goal is to live a soft, comfortable, trial-free life, then true, biblical Christianity is not for you. Furthermore, if you are not being attacked and afflicted by your enemy on a regular basis, you might want to stop and ask why.
