Guilt That Imprisons

Sunday, June 13th, 2010

Many of us are saddled with guilt. It could come from past mistakes, from areas of our life where we don’t “measure up”, from a false image of ourselves that we hope to project but that really keeps us in prison.

The thought I had during church today was about how hard it is truly “turn around.” As noted, we are often clutching the bars of our own prison, face out, not realizing that the door is actually open behind us.

God’s interest in the end is the change, not guilt.
