Our problems start small, but little things turn into big things. Little liberties turn into big vices. And then one day you find yourself staring up at a full-grown giant, casting a long shadow. What we need to do is ask God to cleanse us of our sins on a regular basis. Don’t wait until it builds up to some giant problem or horrible mess. David prayed, “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test my thoughts. Point out anything you find in me that makes you sad and lead me along the path of everlasting life” (Psalm 139:23-24 )
