Reading through Exodus this morning and noted that Pharaoh was willing to compromise. "You can go, but just the men, and only go a little way." No, Moses knew that was not a good compromise. Then it struck me com-promise. I was hoping that the breakdown of the word would give some insight com=with and promise=a declaration that something will or will not be done. So along side of the promise comes something to be put with it, "you can go, but." How often do we get this from the enemy of our souls. You can follow God, but... Total obedience. "No Compromise" was the title of an old Kieth Green album and the album cover artwork depicts Mordecai not bowing to Haman. There are times to bow and times to not bow. God help us to be wise as serpents, but gentle as doves.
