Little sinners




Perhaps the smallness of the sin is urged as
a reason why you may commit it: "It is but
a little sin
a small mattera trifle!"

But, if you commit this little sin
you will offend
a great God! Is there any little hell to torment
little sinners in? No! The least sinners in hell are
full of misery! There is great wrath treasured up
for those whom the world regard as little sinners.

The less the sin
the less the inducement you should
have to commit it. Will you provoke God for a trifle?
Will you destroy your peace, wound your conscience,
and grieve the Spirit
all for nothing? What madness
is this!

 

John Flavel
