A small drop of red dye colors a large glass of clear water; Similarly, a small act of deception colors our character. The wisdom is cross-cultural. In Chinese, a famous quote by Liu Bei, an ancient warlord, reminds us: “Do no evil because it is small, while small goodness is worth doing too.” Though he had insufficient military strength and lacked resources, he could compete with other warlords by attracting many people with different strengths. The Bible has similar teaching: “If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities – Luke 16:10.” Character is tested in our small choices. Two students were caught cheating in an examination. One duplicated the whole passage from the textbook, and the other just peeped. Despite the scale, they got the same level of punishment for the punishment was not on the cheating scale but the deceitful intention. In the Lord’s view, there is no scale difference in wickedness; all are the expressions of our primitive sins. Fortunately, if we confess our sins, He will not pursue them.
