Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: In October of 2003, a raging fire devastated massive portions of southern California, destroying more than 3,000 homes and claiming twenty-two lives.
Ken Hale was one of the heroic firefighters working to control the fire. He said, “As soon as I had found out people had died, it changed my entire outlook on the fire. It became something very deadly, a monster.”
Some of us need that kind of change in perspective regarding sin. We’ve all seen how sins like adultery can destroy a life. But sins that we consider “small” can be deadly, too. Our hearts for God can be destroyed when the fires of jealousy, anger, self-pity, worry, or gluttony go unchecked.
The book of James says, “After desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death” (James 1:15).
Are there any sparks of sin threatening to engulf your life?
