James 1:15 "Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full grown, gives birth to death."
It starts small. I don't know why, but small things are cute. One of our speakers at Tauernhof this Spring talked about having "pet sins." The problem is that eventually, they grow up. But, even little tiny pet sins are not innocent. This is going to sound horrible, but I think about little kids. Let me explain. They look so little and sweet and innocent, but honestly...? Not the kids I deal with. They're little manipulators from the get-go.
It starts small.
And you think you have control.
But then it grows. And grows.
And pretty soon...
you're in trouble.
