Little wigglers: microscopic starters, epic finishers.

The tiniest of deeds: the dropping of larvae, growing into a pesky nuisance, breeding in something as profound, yet as simple as water.

Water, life giving and flowing at its purest, fetid cesspool at its other extreme, but when lost in the middle, a deceptive colonizing ground for the carrier of disease. Standing still, not flowing. The appearance of life but the home of death: Malaria, Dengue.

The life cycle reaches its peak and the host spreads its wings and begins its dance of evil, spreading its poison with disregard to all. Young, old and sick fall prey to its quickly spreading wickedness. The sequence starts again as the sick are targeted by new spreaders who go on to carry their deadly cargo to a new blood host.

Lacking the flow that washes away dirt, debris and wiggling little invaders, sluggish waters become tragedy central for the release and acceptance of viral bits and pieces.

Little wigglers: microscopic starters, epic finishers.

The tiniest of deeds: sin, bred in tepid, stagnant waters of the heart. It grows without inhibition.

It grasps hold of the opportunity to multiply. It seizes the day and ruins it.

Left unchecked it burgeons beyond its boundaries in a quest for sin fertile blood so the multiplication process can begin again.

Standing water, appearing clean, cool and inviting, a promise of refreshment unfulfilled, instead becoming an incubator for sickness of the soul.

The little sin wigglers take hold and do their dastardly deeds.

Lacking the flow that washes away the dirt of pride, envy and lust it backflows and stagnates; a breeding pot for death instead of life.

The outbreak has begun.

Little sin wigglers...ouch! I love your imagery
Joe Moreland04/16/11
What a great analogy. Water is used so much in the Bible illustrate this same point (the well .vs the spring) and you did an excellent job of putting it into modern terminology. Like my grandma used to say - "if you aint growin', you're dyin'". Anyway, I think this is wonderfully constructed and a very accurate essay. Nic job!

Sepsis of sin, very visually laid out in a well written warning!

This was definitely a fresh take on the topic! You made mosquito larvae enjoyable now that takes talent! This is at the top of my list!

Yes, wonderful imagery, fantastic analogy. Something I could feel with my senses. Loved. it.

Very descriptive imagery that builds a relentless momentum of challenge; though it triggers for me a query about how God's grace counter-attacks these wigglers with even greater momentum.
