Thought from the Word

A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD

1 Kings 12:30

“And this thing became a sin: for the people went to worship before the one, even unto Dan.”


"This became a great sin!" There is a story of an abbot (one that is the superior of amonastery for men) who coveted a piece of ground. The owner consented to lease it to the abbot for one crop only. The abbot sowed acorns, a crop which took three hundred years to ripen. So the abbot had the land all of his life. Sin grows from small beginnings—until it attains giant proportions. The man who starts an error, knows not what moral ruin will come from it.Those who begin to depart from the Lord set in motion streams of influence, good or bad, which may continue to flow forever.We do not know what we are doing—when we start to depart from the Lord. Today as in Biblical times spiritual victories come through a continually renewed relationship with God.Keep your relationship with God new and fresh daily.

Trust what Scripture says rather than what someone claims is true
