Satan works the All away from the One with small moves. The other day I was at the hardware store picking up a plunger. My son wanted to carry it to the register. On the way, he pushed it on to the floor and it stuck. He tried to remove the plunger from the floor forcefully, but it would not detach from the tile. He asked me to try. I began to slightly wiggle it from side to side until it broke free.
My son asked, “Dad how did you do that?” I said, “By making very gentle moves the vacuum pressure was released.” It was so subtle that he could not notice the air removed through the sides of the plunger. It was removed, little by little, with seemingly insignificant motions.
I explained to him that this is how Satan takes us from God. Little things that do not really seem to matter sever the connection. The no big deal things like, “Everyone is doing it.” “It’s a victimless crime.” “What they don’t know won’t hurt them.” ext… Then before you know it, we are totally out of alignment with Him and we begin to spiral downward.
When we fall into Satan’s trap, we do not even see it coming!
