We can be sooo certain that we are right – we don’t do the REALLY bad sins, right? But Jesus calls us to an ever deeper understanding of the ways that we are wrong: not listening when someone is in pain; staring at our phones when we should be having family time; failing to tell our coworkers or neighbors about Jesus. It’s not about fixating on how bad we are; instead, we should always be asking for a clearer vision about who we are and turning it all over to Jesus.
Questions for further thought:
1. What is the most recent way in which you identified a “small” sin that needed correction?
2. What did you do with that realization?
Challenge: Pray for insight and a nudge from the Holy Spirit about where to seek improvement in your life.
