Our Proud Sins?
Tuesday 23 January 2024
Old Photo, Old Problem:
For your name’s sake, O Lord, pardon my guilt, for it is great.
When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, ‘Son, your sins are forgiven.’
Words of Grace For Today
There is nothing more difficult for proud, rich humans to do than to admit their guilt.
There is nothing more difficult for proud, poor humans to do than to admit their guilt.
We spend so much time trying to make it look like we are good enough.
Only when we are assured that God will forgive us are we capable of being so bold as to confess our sins.
And then, as promised God forgives us.
So what are we to do with that forgiveness?
Live lives blessed by forgiving others, maybe?
