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.
