Proverbs Challenge, Day 28


“He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.”

Trying to pretend that we have no sin is useless.  Every human being has “missed the mark” of God’s holiness.  We all have sinned.  Our challenge is to be willing to confess our sin.  To confess means more than just to say “I have sinned”.  To confess is to take ownership and responsibility for our sin.  This wise saying from our twenty-eighth day in our August Proverbs Challenge promises that when we are willing to confess our sins, we have the promise of God’s mercy.  As I think about the ramifications of this, I recall that His Word declares His mercy is everlasting.  I pray that God will help us truly confess our sins so that He may shower us with His everlasting mercy!
