Have you ever seen those cute little baby tigers the zoos always put in their advertisements. They are so cute! I think the totally white ones are cool, but the orange and black ones are awesome because they look so much like real baby tigers. Either way, they’re kind of like house cats in the way they play with things and paw at everything. It’s like you could just take them home and keep them in your room as pets.
And such is the case with “little” sins. A lot of people (of all ages) like to toy with little sins. They can be fun when you get right down and think about it. Even the Bible admits that sin can be pleasurable for a while, but then it becomes like one of those little Bengal tigers that was so cute. It starts to grow up and before you know it the things weights 600 pounds, eats raw meat and lives in your bedroom. Oh… and guess what you’re made of!?
“By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a short time.” Heb 11:25
