We woke up one morning to find that a wasp nest had formed in one of our flowering crab trees overnight...that was fast and unexpected. How often do we go through life and let little things creep into our lives, thinking that we can handle it or that it really does not matter. A sharp tone of voice, skipping devotions just once, letting others cover your work now and then, stretching the truth ever so slightly...you know yourself what it is that you let creep into your life! 9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump. Galatians 5:9 Don't let Satan decieve you and make you buy into the lie, " oh, that sin is really not that bad"!! Why did Jesus have to die?? It was because of SIN!! If we don't take care of this little wasp nest it will grow bigger, no doubt about it!! Another interesting thing that I learn from this, is that the wasp nest will hurt others if I don't get rid of it. When we let sin grow in our lives, it not only hurts us, but it hurts others as well. Don't think that you can waste time, yell at others, think bad thoughts, boast and dominate conversation ect. and others won't be affected. Today if you are one of those who is compromising and letting sin in your life, cry out to God to forgive you and to start out anew. "If we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. I John 1:9 Praise Jesus we find forgiveness at the foot of the cross.
Wow, I don't think that I will ever look at a wasp nest quite the same anymore! I hope that this encourages you as much as it encouraged me!
