Thought of the Day !!

Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity.  I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD "— and you forgave the guilt of my sin.
                                                            Psalm 32:5 (NIV)

They say that confession is good for the soul.  And whoever they are, they're right.  But in most cases I would presume that people are talking about a mental or emotional well-being.  In other words, when we confess to one another, it can make us feel good.  

But confession to God is good for the eternal soul as well.  God knows what we've done.  He doesn't need us to tell Him.  But when we confess we take the first step of repentance and we humble ourselves before God.  

So confess before God and God will forgive you when you do so with the right attitude of humility and repentance.

In the love of Christ,
greg

Seems that if we confess, we acknowledge our misgivings and that should make us more aware so that we will not repeat those ill deeds -- sins. Confession is a form of awareness and growth, for sure.
