Throughout the Word of God we learn of heartaches and hardships that develop in our lives simply due to not addressing the roots of sin. The longer we allow sin to grow it not only affects our life but it also has a negative affect on others. Many people overlook how their sin impacts someone elses’ life due to caring more about themselves instead of properly loving thy neighbor.
It is very easy to allow Satan to spiritually consume us and the Lord taught us this message with Cain from the beginning of time. For in Genesis 4 the Lord said to Cain,“Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen? If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.”
When we allow a seed of sin to enter our lives without addressing it immediately then we are allowing that seed to grow roots that will continue to grow out of control. This is why God’s Word tells us in Ephesians 4,”Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath.” It is my prayer that we don’t allow a seed of sin or lack of faith to rob someone else of their joy…amen
