1 Timothy 5:17-25
Do not . . . share in other peoples sins. 1 Timothy 5:22
A Christian man in our community received a promotion that greatly increased his income. His fellow salesmen urged him to upgrade his life through large credit card purchases. Whatever the others did, he didfamily skiing vacations, cruises, new furniture, expensive shopping trips.
Then sales dipped, and he fell behind in his payments. The pressure put his marriage under tremendous strain. His buddies suggested that he do what they did: pad his expense accounts and turn in inflated sales reports. He did, but he became consumed with anxiety and guilt.
A wise Christian friend observed the strain he was under and prayed for him. He then counseled him to face the reality of his situation. The anguished believer finally cried out to God in shame and repentance. He confessed his sin, made things right with his company, and talked about it with his wife. Peace eventually returned to his life.
Pauls instructions to elders in todays passage apply to all believers in Jesus Christ. When so many cultures in the world are driven by pride and greed, the apostles command not to share in other peoples sins (v.22) is timely.
When enticed to join others in wrongdoing, stay out of it!

Thanks for the memories Kathy. My favorite comic would have to be Red Skelton. I still can remember him from a movie,I think it was called the Yellow Cab Driver. That was so long ago though that I may have totally forgor the name.
