Thankful Thought of the Day:
Humility does not equate to shame. When we admit our wrongs from the past, we are set free.
Any of you ever felt remorse or regret for deeds done while in your youth? Come on . . . it’s ok to admit it. None of us are perfect and the folly of youth is hard to overcome.
So here’s a story from my youth. I was hanging out with some buddies who decided it was a good idea to throw an egg at someone’s house who was, shall we say, less than kind. (Through the lens of a juvenile).
Being a goody tooshoo, this felt incredibly wrong and yet exciting. So I lobbed an egg toward her door . . . and it bounced back at me. LOL. God was so kind to show me then that I would reap what I had sown. My egg throwing days were over.
Whatever the shame is in our lives from our youth . . . those who are in Christ have the shame removed. It does not matter how bad they were – ALL sin – ALL shame – has been removed.
Humility does not equate to shame. When we admit our wrongs from the past, we are set free. Praise God!
