Small Sin; Big Consequences
Today’s reading: 2 Samuel 19:8-21:22
Despite the title above, there are no small sins. Any sin is rebellion against a Holy God. Yet there are sins which are subtle and often go undetected until they grow into a major problem. Sheba, the rebel in today’s reading, exploited pride and jealousy (small sins?) and used it to mount an almost-successful overthrow of the kingdom.
Beware of small sins with big consequences.
