Stopping a Basketball Game

An NBA game between the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors was stopped for about five minutes because of a bat that was swooping over the court and flying uncomfortably close to some of the players. The bat was finally caught in a net and released outside.

Just as a little bat could disrupt an entire game, so a simple sin can stop the productive life of a Christian.
