The video we watched at last Friday's meeting focused on the principle, "Small Compromises Lead to Great Disasters" (little sins lead to big sins). We all agreed that this was true in our own lives, knowing that "...he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much." (Luke 16:10b). However, the opposite is also true, "He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much..." (Luke 16:10a). So just as allowing ourselves to lie every once in awhile will lead to lying all the time, being intentional about being truthful will make us trustworthy!
Our Bible time focused on similar topics from Ephesians 4:22-29, as we saw that God has a substitute for sinful activities. Just as being truthful is the cure for lying, righteous anger is the cure for sinful anger, working is the cure for stealing, edifying words are the cure for corrupt language, and forgiveness is the cure for grieving the Spirit. We had 4 guests with us that night and Josh serenaded us on his keyboard during break, and our small group discussing was profitable as confession of faults one to another was made. As you read these words, are there things in your life that you need God's substitution for? If so, do you feel prompted to confess those faults? If so, come out to one of our meetings, where you can have a platform to do so, sincerely, Pastor Steve Fleshman...
