You probably had the problem — A mouse in your house! It’s an unpleasant discovery. Hopefully, it moves you to action.
When it comes to mice in your home, the old proverb of Benjamin Franklin is appropriate, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” The best way to keep the mouse out of your house is to plug every possible access point. Give the critter no entry. The smallest openings have to be filled vigilantly and diligently.
There’s a spiritual lesson in all this. Our enemy the devil, is looking for ways to get into our houses — our lives, families, and relationships. Sadly, we have often thrown out the welcome mat to him. We give him unchecked access points.
How does this happen? Through the media we consume! Music, movies, computers, and all potential access points of our spiritual adversary into our house. The enemy of our soul brings into our lives spiritual germs, diseases, and filth because of the choices we make.
Peter, the apostle, reminded us of the potential invasions and what we should do about them in 1 Peter 5:8 (NLT) “Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.”
Do everything you can to keep the spiritual mouse out of your house!
