The definition of sin is repugnant to human sensitivity. It is in our nature to hide the ancient malignancy. And so, we roam boulevards while clad with stench that is merely aired from makeshift alternatives.
All have sinned.
All missed the mark.
The proper understanding of life does not begin with cognitive apprehension or affective recognition.
The way to deal with internal laundry is through God's detergent.
He beckons us to obey Him, first.
He then grants wisdom to affirm the willed initiative.
In my faith journey, I am most stuck when I do laundry on my terms.
I am both convinced and convicted that my sins are only removed when the stain of Christ's love drops.
