We Shouldn’t Be Proud Of Our Sin

We are all sinners. The Bible says, “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”(Rom 3:23). But, does sin bother us? If not, it should.
Proverbs 14:19 says, “Fools mock at sin, But among the upright there is good will.” (Proverbs‬ ‭14:9‬ )
Think about the words, “Fools mock at sin…”
Again, we are all sinners. But does it bother us when we sin? If not, it should.
Several years ago, our family was vacationing in Panama City, Fla. Across the week, I got to know the family beside us. The man had grown up in the Jackson, Ms area in the 80’s. I was familiar with the area. The man told me he was not a Christian then.
One day we were talking and I asked, “Do you remember when such & such happened?” He replied, “there is no telling what I was doing then…but it wasn’t good.”
Those were the years before he became a Christian and his lifestyle bothered him. We all slip….we all sin….but it should bother us when we do.
We shouldn’t be proud of our sin. It should bother us but, it should also give us a feeling of joy that we are forgiven
