When you judge, you sin, just like every other sin. There is a huge component of pride and comparison. One sin is not better than another because it is more obvious or noticable. Any over reach of pride is sin for it is in stark contrast to the humbleness we are supposed to have being created beings and not creators. We need to humbly work on our own decisions and walk with loving God and everyone else. Let them work out their own walk with loving God and everyone else. Judging in never to help the person but to pump yourself up. Don’t. Love. Master that well and you will inspire others.😄❤
Tonight, we ate at Olive Garden. What I mean is that we over – dulged at Olive Garden, dessert and all. We rarely (thank the Lord) eat that way and I am not sure what got into us, just that it looked good, tasted good and was good and we kept eating it. It was fantastic. Until now. Ugh! I feel awful and look 3 months pregnant. Sin? Not necessarily unless we make a habit of it (gluttony). But we do feel awful so maybe a bit of a sin against our poor bodies. We feel awful! So we will ride it out, accept the consequences, and learn from it and keep it much simpler.
Sin is like this. It looks good, is tantalizing, you over- indulge and greedily devour every morsel, then afterward in comes bad feelings, guilt, sickness. It is bad. So, you can choose to accept consequences and repent from it, learning and going a different way next time and apologize and you are forgiven. Yes, have to ride out consequences, but being redeemed is a lighter feeling inside. 😄❤
Sea of Forgetfulness
Our sins are thrown by our Heavenly Father into the sea of wilful forgetfulness as soon as we humbly ask Him to. This is the depth of the love of our loving God and thr power of Jesus’ sacrifice and His power to forget as well as forgive. And oh what a relief that is to be truly forgiven completely. Pure. Clean. It is gone. If you bring it up, that is the enemy or your own unforgiveness of yourself. How dare you feign higher standards than God. How dare you call a sin unforgiven that God has forgiven and forgotten! Do not play the enemy’s game that way. ❤
Sinful Pleasures are purposefully provided and promoted and given with alluring lies and over – enhancing natural desires for a reason. The best case scenario, but still very damaging, is keeping us from being humble and contrite by feeding ego and pride over obedience so serving and worshipping is hindered or at least slowed. The worst case scenario the pleasurable (for the moment) sins lead us to destruction, whether jail time, marriage destruction, suicide or other body destruction, murder, cancers from stress or body abuse, abortion/murder of babies.
Sinful pleasures take our natural God-given desires and magnify them and lie enough to twist it to work at our destruction and tempt us to some form of separation from God our loving Creator. This is the danger. People call it “playing with fire” and that could not be more eternally true. Please beware and live simpler and holier so your eternity can be secure with God through Jesus. Pray humbly and ask Yahweh to help you. And He will.❤
