“Whoever covers over his sins does not prosper. Whoever confesses and abandons them receives compassion.” (Proverbs 28: 13, God’s Word Translation)
We can’t hide and ignore our errors and expect to truly succeed. Those sins—straying from God, good, the Truth—have repercussions. It isn’t about punishment for mistakes. But when we start with imperfect principles, the equation doesn’t come out right.
We need to do our best to erase those errors and start fresh. When we recognize what isn’t aligned with what is truly right and seek to address it, things come together for a more perfect output. If we continue to hold on to wrong-doing or the memory of it, or to dark or unkind thoughts, these tend to rule our lives. This keep us from feeling the true freedom of innocence.
Compassion comes to us naturally as we relinquish our sins, release ourselves from hiding, and realize the deep and broad and beautiful mercy and love of God. In fact, having done wrong and feeling that divine embrace of healing, saving, can cause us to really prosper. We have come to see what it means to surrender the human sense and to let God love us, clean us up, and send us on our way. This experience does more than cancel out an error in the equation. It instructs us and inspires us to continue in a way that is more right and light and lovely!
