IMAGINE THROUGH REPENTANCE
Today’s Scripture: “If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.” - James 4:17
Today’s Thought: At the end of a day, it is spiritually healthy to consider any sins or wrong we may have committed that day and ask God to forgive us. But the Bible throws something else at us: the sin of omission. Omission: a failure to do something. Synonyms: negligence; neglect. (dictionary.com). Now chew on that for a while. The wrongs we commit are sometimes easy to list, but imagine how big the sin of our negligence might be! What have we knowingly failed to do? What word went unsaid? What aid did we fail to offer? What person was ignored? What ministry was neglected?
Today’s Prayer: Oh good and perfect Father! I come to you overwhelmed by the sin of my negligence! Help me to obey Your voice when it urges me to do good throughout my day. Take away any sel shness or stinginess that keeps me from doing the good You want me to do.
