There are lots of accounts of people in bondage to alcoholism and drugs where the person remains in the addiction because the pain they deal with isn't enough to cause them to decide to seek help. But one day they saw how their behavior was causing pain to those they love the most. Only when they had seen that, they stopped. In the same way, every time you sin, you are hurting someone else. Who? You're hurting the One who gave His life for you, who died for you, who died because of your sins. So when you sin, you're causing Him pain, grief, tears. It's what He wept for. If you won't stop that sin just because it is wrong, or if you won't stop because it is hurting your own life, stop your sin because you are hurting someone else, the One who gave His life for you. You don't want to cause Him grief or hurt. It was enough that He went on the cross for you and me. Bless Him now. Be done with that sin. Be finished once and for all, and bless and stop hurting the One who loves you.
From Message #1188 - Heavenly Tears
When you're tempted today to do what you shouldn't do, consider the pain you'll be causing the One you love. And be done with it.
