Comparing Sin

I believe, as human beings, it’s easier for us to compare sin than deal with our own.  You may think the sin of another is far worse than yours; after all, you didn’t have to do jail time or go through an ugly divorce.  All you did was A, B or C.

In my own life, I’ll be the first to admit I’ve made some whopper mistakes (i.e. “sin.”), it’s easier to call them mistakes, isn’t it?  Or to downplay the seriousness of the sin.  “I only ate an entire bag of licorice,” or “I’ve told quite a few small white lies, but they don’t really hurt anyone.”

Sin is sin is sin.  God sees them all the same size, way and type.  God judges us equally.

Psalm 51:4
Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight; so you are right in your verdict and justified when you judge.
Romans 7:18
For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.

In your daily life, attempt to avoid sin, ask for forgiveness as it rears its ugly head (and it will, no one is devoid of sin), be mindful of the sin in your life, purge it, pray for yourself, ask for prayer, relearn the bad habits, get right with God.
