Sin is never small
by Berni Dymet
I John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he who is faithful and just will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Sometimes - we think that we're doing everything right and yet it's just not coming together. It's as though we're doing our part, but God isn't doing His.
Sometimes, it's because His timing just isn't our timing. But then other times, well He's all ready to go with His blessing, but there's something stopping Him. Like a blockage.
Now if you've ever had a blocked pipe in your house, you'll know that a very small blockage can hold back a huge amount of water.
Sometimes, there's some little compromise, something we're holding back, some small, hidden, thing that we find so easy to rationalize, so easy to make excuses for……something that no one else can see…except God and us. And He's just waiting for us to set that right….to remove the hidden blockage, so that all that living water can flow.
"But, it's so small. No one can see it." Sure - that's what blockages are like. In God's eyes sin is never small.
