Lately I’ve been giving more thought to what sin means to me--not the individual ‘bad’ things I do as much as sin as part of being human. We aren’t perfect, and if we want to find any peace from God, we had better recognize and acknowledge that part of who we are. To do so keeps us humble and open to doing our part to work for God’s kingdom come here on earth.
My prayer for the children and parents separated at our borders is more powerful when I admit that I am complicit as a sinful human being. Only when I keep picking myself off the floor can I hope that officials and politicians will do the same for the children.
