Molehills And Gnats

Too busy swatting gnats that they don’t see the wasps, and then there’s those molehills,
Both molehills and gnats oft responsible for pointless burdens and certain ills.
Yes, some people making mountains out of molehills, and others swatting at gnats,
And thereby, when it comes to the more important issues, perhaps blind as bats.

And enter any wasp, some people far too sidetracked to notice its entry,
And wasps more dangerous than gnats — and as for mountains, there’s enough already.
And thus it all about focus, we either looking in the right place or not,
The latter making burdens heavier, and those wasps so much harder to spot.

“You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel!” (Matt 23:24, NIV).

“ ...Instead, make up your mind not to put a stumbling-block or obstacle
in your brother’s way” (Rom 14:13, NIV).
