Involving others in sin compounds guilt.
Genesis 3:6 The woman could see that the tree was beautiful and the fruit looked so good to eat. She also liked the idea that it would make her wise. So she took some of the fruit from the tree and ate it. Her husband was there with her, so she gave him some of the fruit, and he ate it.
One of the realities of sin is that it’s effects spread. When we do something wrong we often try to relieve our guilt by involving others.
Recognise and confess your guilt before you are tempted to involve others in your wrongdoing.
