Scripture: Luke 23:1-25, Matthew 27:1-26
When faced with the decision to compromise ask yourself these three questions: Will this cause me to defy my convictions? Will this cause me to deny my conscience? Will this cause me to defile my character? If the answer is yes to any one of those questions, then you must rethink your course of action. There are some things that you must never compromise. Jesus knew this as He stood before the governor, Pilate, and was questioned.
"There is a difference between the willingness in principle to compromise--which is fine--and the willingness to compromise on principle--which is not." --Dr. Merritt
