It’s kind of like someone who has a slow leak in their tire. Each day it loses a little bit of air. And they might even notice it looks a little low. But they don’t take care of it.

One morning they go outside and their tire is completely flat! And they think to themselves, “Man, my tire just went flat!” No it didn’t. It has been slowly leaking for days. It went flat over a period of time.

Often sin works the same way in our life.

Usually we don’t just give into this huge sin that suddenly appears in our life. It is a process of a downward spiral that often begins with something so little, a tiny little sin. Something so small in fact that we convince ourselves it won’t even matter.

A slow leak.
