Sin is nothing to play with. It has the strength to defeat you if you get too close to it with excessive confidence in your own strength. A well-to-do man advertised for a chauffeur. Three applicants came. His first question was, “How close to the edge of a cliff can you drive without going over?” One man said, “A yard.” Another said, “A foot.” The third said, “I always try to keep as far away as possible.” The third man got the job.

Many people try and get as close to sin as they can without actually engaging in it.  This is very dangerous.  We should try and stay as far away as possible from sin.
