Leaven helps dough to rise. In and of itself, for baking purposes, it’s a good thing. But there’s a powerful lesson we learn about leaven from the Bible.
You see, once leaven enters in to dough, it’s nearly impossible to get it out. It will spread through the entire “lump” of dough. Ultimately, affecting the entire batch.
When it comes to sin, a little leaven will destroy the whole batch.
In this sermon from 1 Corinthians chapter 5 we find out how sin impacted the early church. Ultimately, we learn how to guard against the same happening to our church(es) today.
