Squirmles and Squirrel were at it again,
Arguing who had the bigger sin.
They both had done wrong,
But were trying to decide where the greatest blame belonged.
Squirrel had lied about something small,
She didn’t think it mattered, not even at all.
It was small and silly, a little white lie,
She’d get away with it, or at least she’d try.
Squirmles on the other hand had done something worse,
At the store she had slipped some candy into her mother’s purse.
Squirmles argued it’s wasn’t a big deal,
But inside her heart it was guilt she could feel.
Squirrel pointed her finger and shamed what she had done,
Not realizing her sinned, too, weighed a ton.
They debated late into the night,
Who had done “worse” in God’s sight.
The next day when listening at church,
Their hearts did the Lord search.
He revealed to them their sins were the same,
No one deserved a greater blame.
Christ came and died for it all,
The big sins and the small.
A sin is a sin, no matter the size,
It’s for that reason from the dead Christ did rise.
Romans 3:23 ESV
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
Romans 6:23 ESV
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
