An old man hosted a traveling man as he journeyed home. The enemy came knocking on the old man’s door. They were looking for the traveler. Instead of sending the enemy away the old man compromised by giving them two women instead.
Later one of the women was murdered. Tribe fought against tribe. Thousands upon thousands were killed because the old man figured it’d be okay to try and suffice the enemy.
It’s never okay to try to appease the devil. He will take what you give him and destroy everything he can. Continue to give Jesus complete ownership of all areas in your life. There isn’t any room for compromise.
Judges 19:16-30 & 20
