A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough (Galatians 5:9).
Remember the I Love Lucy episode where Lucy decided to bake her own bread?
You don’t? Friend, you need to spend a little quality time researching that! Anyway, there is an episode in which Lucy wants to do things the old fashioned way, and she figures she’ll make her own bread from scratch. She gets confused as to how much yeast she should use, so she just dumps some in. The yeast does it’s yeasty-thing, and the bread begins to rise.
At some point Lucy opens the oven door and is attacked by a loaf the size of a 1972 Country Squire station wagon.
Trust me, that’s big.
It didn’t seem like a lot of yeast, but the results were devastating.
Those ideas that get into your head from, well, wherever–they seem so small. But they’ve got a way of working through the dough of your spirit and causing a whole lot of damage.
You should pray more.
You should give more.
You should serve more.
You should do more.
You should be more.
So small, these thoughts–but so potent.
Sweep out the yeast, Beloved.
