Joshua 23:11-13 (KJV)
Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that ye love the LORD your God.
Else if ye do in any wise go back, and cleave unto the remnant of these nations, even these that remain among you, and shall make marriages with them, and go in unto them, and they to you:
Know for a certainty that the LORD your God will no more drive out any of these nations from before you; but they shall be snares and traps unto you, and scourges in your sides, and thorns in your eyes, until ye perish from off this good land which the LORD your God hath given you.
God warned Israel, through Joshua, of the ease in which a believer can slip away from loving God.
There are all around us in this world, things that crave our attention, and our affection. From the ways we spend our time to the people we are drawn to as companions, Christians are constantly enticed into compromising relationships. It is only through awareness of the problem and diligence in our walk with God that our love of Him is steadfast.
And it is only in our love for Him that we find blessing.
