Deception is powerful because you don’t realize it’s happening. Sometimes we think we’re doing something good, such as working feverishly to earn extra money for a bigger house, a newer car or more savings. But be careful not to obsess about material things at the expense of growing your relationship with your spouse, family and God.
If you think you are standing strong, be careful not to fall.
~ 1 Corinthians 10:12 [NLT]
