A mighty tree stood high upon the mountain. For many decades it survived the hail, the heavy snows, the strong winds, the lightning and the ice storms. It not only survived, it prospered. Then finally it was felled by an attack of little beetles.
It’s the little things that you have to watch out for. Little things can end a friendship. Little things can wreck a family. Little things can destroy a marriage. Little things can pull you away from church. Little things can ruin your walk with Christ.
Yes, you have to watch out for the little things.
“Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.”—Ephesians 5:15-16.
