Confess and forgive others!

Knowing what I ought to do and not doing it is being disobedient!

The sins I know about are not the problem, for I have confessed them. Of serious concern are the sins I try to hide. The sins I think no one knows and the ones we do not want our neighbors, our friends, even our loved ones to know about us.

"It was not the coughing that carried him off, but the coffin they carried him off in."

Confessing and being slow is an insult. Just put the shoe on the other foot, is it better working with someone who moves with a purpose and easily admits their mistakes or some stubborn and slick who lies, attempts to hide or slow about admitting the truth? Even sins you have completely forgotten about, give yourself room-- hate, fear, racism and living a double-standard life. Know the real culprit, the real problems and the roots, grassroots?

We all fall short and rather than EDUCATE, it is easier for us to hide behind a robe, judge and condemn others. Ever more, we pride ourselves on being judge and jury and it has become a form of entertainment; yet life--safety, security and the way we live today is increasingly more dangerous.

Be reminded the masks we wear may protect us against loss of face but cannot hide the truth about us from others nor ourselves.

If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him; and if he sins against you seven times in the day, and turns to you seven times, and says, `I repent,' you must forgive him.

There is no real relationship without honesty, no healing or no forgiveness; without CONFESSION!

Like the Kenny Roger's song says, You got to know when to hold them, know when to fold them, know when to walk away, know when to run.
