Do you know that the devil is not really trying to plant a tree in your life, all he wants to do is plant the seed. Just think about it, if by the time you wake up tomorrow morning, you see a big tree outside your house that wasn’t there today, won’t you be scared? However, chances are that there is a tiny green plant shooting out of the ground in a corner of your compound that you haven’t even notice, and if you overlook it when noticed, it can then grow to be a big tree.
Likewise, you won’t develop a terrible habit overnight, but your resistance towards a habit your once despised can erode on a daily basis till it appears normal to you. The first time you notice a colleague at work cutting corner or taking cuts from customers, it will appear terribly wrong to you, but if care is not taken, and you continue to look at that colleagues and what the money is doing for that person, it’s very likely that you’d join the person.
Just the other day, my friend called me to come check out something in an animated movie. He saw something and wanted to know if I’d see it too, and yes, I did. Buried in one of the last scenes in the movie is 1-2seconds of a scene that promotes homosexuality. It was so short that I’m sure majority of those that see that movie won’t notice. I thought to myself, why put it if most people won’t notice, but it occurred to me that those that put it know as short as it is, it’s long enough to plant the seed, especially in young minds. Even my friend admitted he was planning to send it to his nieces and nephews before he saw that scene, so what if he didn’t.
Proverbs 4:23 – Guard your heart more than anything else, because the source of your life flows from it[GW].
Before anyone will do anything bad, their mental resistance towards it must first be lifted. So guard your heart, else your life will be totally defenseless. God Bless You!
