This drawing is kind of a piggy back from my drawing from yesterday. It is entitled, “Making A Molehill Out of Mountains.” It seems to me we live in a country where the smallest thing goes from being a little molehill into big mountain. Now I’m not talking about a true offense because they should never be dealt with appropriately. I am talking about when somebody offends you because they don’t like what you’re wearing or when something they’ve said something you’ve taken the wrong way.
These moments can become mountainous in our ears. In a huff we turn and walk away vowing to never to talk to the person again. More arguments start over small misunderstandings that blossom into big issues more than anything else. The Bible says in Proverbs 17:14 ESV, “The beginning of strife is like letting out water, so quit before the quarrel breaks out.” In other words make sure all molehills stay that way. Don’t let them become mountains.
