“O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift my face to you, my God, for our iniquities have risen higher than our heads, and our guilt has mounted up to the heavens. 7 From the days of our fathers to this day we have been in great guilt. And for our iniquities we, our kings, and our priests have been given into the hand of the kings of the lands, to the sword, to captivity, to plundering, and to utter shame, as it is today.”
Shame affects how we live this life, often in dramatic ways. So often people remain in their shame by trying to cover it, deny it or make excuses for it. We have to be willing to examine shame instead of being put off or condemned by it. As we celebrate the 1-year anniversary of the release of “Shame Off You”, listen in as Authors Denise Pass and Angela Donadio share five reasons why shame matters and we need to deal with it.
