[CF Devotionals] 2009-05-01 - Cheat Codes

Sometimes, if a part gets tricky you can use cheat codes to get past it. I don't use them most of them unless it is to unlock a special mode that can't be done by normal means. But video games aren't like real life. In life there are no cheat codes. There are no shortcuts – no good ones anyway.

You may try to take shortcuts but in the long run there will be consequences for the actions. In video games, a shortcut just ruins the challenge but in life it can ruin lives – your own and those of others. Numbers 32:23 assures us, "Be sure your sin will find you out."

If you have to choose between a wrong easy way and long right way, choose what is right. Don't fall prey to the "have it all right now" mentality that consumes so many others.
