One of the benefits of our Sunday class is having the contemporary praise group in attendance. Every week prior to the lesson, JC (Jeff C.) plays a different song to set the tone. Last week’s song, “Slow Fade”, by Casting Crowns was a fitting segue to our study on David and Bathsheba. Check out the lyrics. I hope you’ll stick around 5 more minutes to see the video afterwards.

Slow Fade
Be careful little eyes what you see
It’s the second glance that ties your hands as darkness pulls the strings
Be careful little feet where you go
For it’s the little feet behind you that are sure to follow

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
It’s a slow fade, it’s a slow fade

Be careful little ears what you hear
When flattery leads to compromise, the end is always near
Be careful little lips what you say
For empty words and promises lead broken hearts astray

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day

The journey from your mind to your hands
Is shorter than you’re thinking
Be careful if you think you stand
You just might be sinking

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
Daddies never crumble in a day
Families never crumble in a day

Oh be careful little eyes what see
Oh be careful little eyes what you see
For the Father up above is looking down in love
Oh be careful little eyes what you seeA 5 minute investment:

Lest you think this is just a “guy” problem, think again. The stats prove this to be a modern — and very dangerous — myth.

“For years the focus of infidelity has been on the habits of men. The popular Janus Report on Sexual Behavior (John Wiley and Sons, 1993) estimated more than one-third of men admitted to having had at least one extramarital sexual experience. But a new survey reveals women are cheating more today than ever before. One in five married women has had a fling — the highest number ever recorded. And, according to a recent study by Tom W. Smith with the National Opinion Research Center, the numbers of cheating wives now equal the statistics on cheating husbands.”

People never crumble in a day. We’re all one glance – one thought – one action – away from trouble and the minute we start believing otherwise is the minute the crumbling process begins.

“When tempted, no one should say, ‘God is tempting me.’ For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.” James 1:13-15
