Sometimes the only way to notice something is if somebody points it out to us. Just a gentle life hack which applies to intriguing succulents at outdoor markets and to the sin that so easily entangles us.
Once upon a few years ago, a roommate listened to me spout some words, repeated them back to me, and then said: Sin blinds us. We need each other to point out our sin.
I was surprised. She wasn't. She showed me mercy by revealing my sin because it really had entangled me.
Alone ain't the way of the Lord. Find yourself some friends in the Family who will look you in the eye and love you all the way Home.
