A PEBBLE

A PEBBLE
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

 A pebble.
In the big scheme of things,
Does it matter?
Hmmm …
Put it in your shoe and tell me.
----
Sin:
A pebble.
Small,
Insignificant,
Single.
In the big scheme of things,
Does it matter?
Hmmm …
Put it in your soul and tell me.
----
A small pebble proves problematic:
Inhibits intimacy,
Prevents peace,
Creates conflict,
Hinders heart,
Prevents growth,
 Grieves God.
Our walk is halted and our growth is stunted.
Our run is reduced and our discernment is impaired.
A single pebble ... matters.
----
Recognize,
Remove,
Respond,
Repent.
Regard that thing …
Called a pebble.
----
A pebble removed
Is a grace received.
A heart relieved …
Of a pebble.
----
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins
And to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 1:9
