Naming my own sin only
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?
