Many years ago a group of small farmers, being particularly superstitious, kept a corner of their fields uncultivated in order to pacify certain evil spirits. They believed that by sacrificing this one corner to the spirits, the remainder of the field would be left undisturbed and fertile. What really happened, of course, is that the weeds in the uncultivated corner went to seed, which was in turn carried by the wind and scattered across the entire field. And so it can be with us. The whole of a person’s life and witness can be infected and ruined by allowing unrestrained sin to dominate even one small corner of their life.
