Day 90-Homestead, Pennsylvania: We Are All Sinners
There is not one single person on this planet that is not subjected to sin. We are all mortals and cannot possibly live up to the notion of being “perfect”. God is aware of this fact and teaches us to repent for our sins and turn our lives over to Jesus. What does being perfect actually mean anyway? Is it not making the same mistakes twice? Is it praying more? Is it going to church everyday? Is it following the commandments of God? It actually takes a combination of everything that we were taught in the Bible and that does not require us to be perfect.
We are all sinners and God forgives us when we lose faith, stumble, and fall along our way. We should really work together as a community of God’s children to help each other grow and not destroy the love God gives each one of us. We should share in each other’s joy and happiness, as we limit the amount of time that we spend pulling each other down. If we spend all our time worrying about what others are doing, how could we possibly have time to do the work God is calling us to do. The idle time that we spend on activities that are mundane separate us from not only God, but also those around us who need our time the most.
Since we are all sinners, we are all in the same boat. Not one man or woman regardless of income is better than another human being. We are all equals in God’s eyes. With that being the case the stereotypes and bigotry that occurs around the world is preventable. The killings and murders of innocent people who follow God is destructive and causes more hatred to occur in this world as a result. Even those who have killed are sinners, but equally worthy of God’s forgiveness. We must focus on God and improving our decision making process to bring us closer to God. When we do this we are filled with the Holy Spirit and we are perceived as close to perfect as we can in God’s eyes.
