My daughter has learned a new game. While waiting on food to arrive at the table, one person removes an item from the table and others try to guess what is different. The game is to see how quickly one can identify the hidden item!
In our lives, we may think that we can just "hide" our sin. We may feel that good works may account for or cover up the wrong that we have done. However, we cannot hide our sin. God knows all that we do and eventually our sinful words, thoughts, or actions will be found out. Instead of trying to hide our sin, we need to acknowledge that we are human and that we sin. When we sin, we should be quick to confess our sin to God and ask for His forgiveness. When we do this, we can receive God's mercy and be redeemed!
You can't hide your sin, so confess it to God and receive His forgiveness!
Thank You for forgiving my sin. Help me to always turn to You to confess my sin and to follow Your guidance in living in a better life. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
