Long Term Damage

“… exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.” – Hebrews 3:13

As I write this, I have just completed an early morning repair job. Going into he kitchen to make my morning coffee, I heard a steady hissing noise. Soon, I was able to locate the source of the noise. The water line behind the refrigerator which leads to the ice maker was spraying water.

It took a minute to move the fridge to reveal a soaked floor. I’m not sure how long the line had been leaking, but it appears there is no major damage. Compare that to the long term damage of a slow leak which makes no noise, just a steady silent drip, drip, drip can lead to a rotten floor, sub floor and worse.

This serves as a reminder that sin can be the same way. Seldom is it a lone major blow out which leads to destruction, but the steady compilation of many sins over time. In fact, the verse above reminds us we can become hardened from sin over time, to the point of even failing to recognize sin or even care about our condition before God.
