Naming my own sin only

by on December 4, 2012

I am reading my latest free book – Johnathan Wilson-Hartgrove’s The Awakening of Hope. The chapter on fasting reminds me of the importance of naming sin. To name sins sin is
“to see them as a corruption of the way we were made to be…. A world in which sin can be named is a world that can be redeemed.”

This got me thinking about my propensity to name the sins of others so much more quickly than I name my own.

For this first week of Advent, I am going to work to live by this: I will name my own sins rather than those of others.

Who is with me?

    Do we have to complete this task in just a week, because if so I might be in trouble.

    • Take all the time you want. My thought was to focus more on identifying my own sins as opposed to those of others.
