Don’t Major on the Minors

I’m sure you’ve seen the ancient symbol often referred to as yin-yang. This symbol shows identical black and white shapes intertwined in a circle. Visually, the implication is that the presence of dark energy and light energy are equal, interconnected and somehow holding good and evil in balance. From a biblical perspective, nothing could be further from the truth. The devil is not equal to God in any aspect. For this reason, we need to put our trust in God, and look for God’s anointing in others around us. 

If the devil can get you to major on the minors, then you’ll wind up spending your time and energy magnifying him — or the things you think he is doing in other’s lives. When this happens, the devil has effectively broken your focus away from God and His plans and purposes. Not to mention, he may also have blocked you from the blessing of fellowship and unity within the body of Christ by talking you into passing judgement on others.

Ask the Spirit of God to help you truly discern the situation, and act with compassion and understanding.

James 4:7 — Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Luke 6:37 — Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven.

1 John 3:11 — For this is the message that you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.

1 Peter 1:22 —  Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart.
