We hear a lot about cheaters nowadays. While our culture has softened its moral stance in many areas, cheating is not one of them. No one likes a cheater. No one defends a cheater. It seems that just about everyone can agree that cheating is wrong because cheating is a form of stealing.
One of the most significant moments of cheating in American history was President Richard Nixon’s scandal at the Watergate hotel. Ever since that event, the suffix “-gate” has been thrown on situations of cheating. For example, we’re all familiar with the recent “spygate” and “deflategate” accusations leveled against the New England Patriots.
There’s a much more serious form of cheating than politics or professional sports, and we’re prone to it. Paul writes, “Let no one cheat you of your reward…” speaking obviously about our faith in Jesus. How could someone steal that from us? It can happen easier than you think.
