Ga 5:9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump. A proverb which condenses a sermon. Probably only one or two Judaizers had done all this evil work in Galatia. A very little thing in the beginning will sometimes work a great mischief. Compare 1Co 5:6.
Heb11_1's comment on 2011-07-01 01:00:45:
The "leaven" that is spoken of is not any one thing. It's influence of any kind. A little kindness can stop someone from suicide while a little hatred can ruin lives. Everyone influences someone somehow. Make a concious effort to use that influence; your peers and other people within your social realm notice you and what you do.
