Little Sins
Krissy, 18


"Do not walk in the way of evil. Avoid it, do not travel on it." Proverbs 4:14-15


Most of us are on the lookout for life's big difficulties...the big sins. But we allow what might be considered a less serious problem to trip us up. An angry word, a dirty thought, a hateful feeling toward someone we see these as small indiscretions. But to a holy God, all our sins are serious. Look at Uzza. He may have thought that touching the ark of God was a small infraction. But it wasn't, and he died instantly. 1 Chronicles 13:5-10

"Little sins" can cause us to fall down in our forward movement toward maturity. Sure, watch out for the big problems, but don't forget the pebbles.

It's "little" sins that trip us up
And cause an unexpected fall;
That's why we need to stay alert
To every sin, both large and small.

Little sins can add up to big trouble.

"Jesus, all sin separates us from you and your Father, help us to recognize that there are no little sins." - Amen
