Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

 1 Corinthians 10:12

Christian mistakes and falling into sin don’t happen suddenly. There’s always a background, a history attached to them. They develop gradually, often unnoticed.

What actually occurs is that a significant event or temptation brings to light what has already been simmering beneath the surface, making it seem like a sudden occurrence.

As Christians, it’s important to recognize the cunning nature of the devil. He doesn’t present sins that don’t appeal to us. Instead, he takes us on a journey, introducing seemingly insignificant things to pique our interest in what we previously found unappealing.

Let’s consider the sin of adultery or fornication as an example. The devil starts by exposing us to conversations that trigger our empathy, leading us to relate with those who engage in such behavior. The purpose is to make us believe that the sin isn’t “that bad” under certain circumstances. Once that initial barrier is broken, it becomes easier to justify a little flirting, and the progression continues until the “big” sin doesn’t appear significant anymore.

As Christians, we need to be vigilant and cautious regarding the small things that are easy to overlook. These seemingly inconsequential matters can eventually grow into significant issues. It’s crucial not to consider ourselves infallible but rather to watch attentively for the subtle doors that lead to sin opening before


1. Dear Lord, we thank you for this reminder. Help us to come daily to your throne for cleansing. Help us not to hide away under the umbrella of “it doesn’t matter.” Please help us, Lord..

2. Lord, give me the Grace to run away even from those things that are so widespread that they do not look like sin anymore. Help me hold your Word as a standard.

3. Lord, I ask that you keep me standing. In the name of Jesus, amen.

  1. Amen.
    By strength shall no man prevail. That’s why it’s important not to ever trust in yourself but in God. Also, every ‘small’ sin should be regarded as big enough to derail our spiritual journey.

    Thank you.
