The Ripple Effect

There are two chooses we can make, both of which will have a ripple effect on the lives of others.

1. We can choose Wisdom, which sends a ripple effect of purity, peace loving, gentleness, selflessness, mercy, good deeds, sincerity, and shows no partiality to whom it can effect.

2. We can choose foolishness, which sends a ripple effect of hurt, anger, jealousy, pride, greed, bitterness, adultery, lust, hate, selfishness, pain, and discontentment.

There is a positive and negative effect, or two types of yeast.

The Negative Yeast

"But it takes only one wrong person among you to infect all the others-a little yeast spreads quickly through the whole batch of dough!" Galatians 5:9 

The Positive Yeast

"Jesus also used this illustration: The Kingdom of Heaven is like yeast used by a woman making bread. Even though she used a large amount of flour, the yeast permeated every part of the dough." Matthew 13:33
