Sin is expensive (Author Unknown)

Sin is expensive. Incredibly expensive.
But the price isn't paid in cash, it's paid
 in mental, emotional, and spiritual pain.
God didn't create an arbitrary list of "DO's"
 and "DON'Ts" to see if the world would follow them.
No, He laid out a set of essential guidelines for living.
His anger towards lying, stealing, cheating,
coveting, murder, jealousy, and pride is because 
all of these behaviors destroy relationships.
Everything that the Bible is trying to protect 
us from.
His desire is love, peace, grace, and harmony
with him and with all creation.
Sin is our defiant rejection of this in an effort 
to satisfy our own selfish desires.

Romans 6:23* For the wage of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (NIV)
