Sin Destroys the Sinner

Certain ants have a passion for the sweet glandular substance given off by the caterpillar of a large blue butterfly. The ants can become so enthralled by the substance they carry the caterpillar into their nest with great delight. What they don’t realize is that the caterpillar gorges himself on the ant larva. Usually such a threat would be attacked by an army of ants and destroyed or repelled. However, because they enjoy the caterpillar’s tasty secretions so much, they become addicted to it. In so doing they are oblivious to the fact that their young are being destroyed!

Christians can enjoy what seems like a small sin so much that they do not see how it destroys them and everything they hold dear.
