This verse hurts. You know why? Because it hits close to home. I tend to think of “sin” as a really short, really bad list of things that I would never do. Isn’t that convenient? But we can actually sin by doing NOTHING.
“Anyone who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.” James 4:17
Ouch. Man, how many times have I broke God’s heart by NOT DOING what He called me to do? If sin is sin, I want to get better at being and doing what God desires. If He says, “no”….then I won’t. If He says, “do”…..then I will.
God, I’m sorry that I am often more focused on GETTING GOOD FROM you than DOING GOOD FOR you. Show us your way! – Sandi
