What do you think of sin?

It is a temptation to think lightly of sin — to ignore it, overlook it, and dismiss it.  The temptation is to consider its consequences as insignificant and unimportant.  Those who are broken, penitent, contrite, and grieved are considered to be over-reacting and morose.  “It’s just not that bad,” too many think.

Yet there is great value in examining the depths of our souls for the full extent of our sin, as Charles Spurgeon noted:

Too many think lightly of sin, and therefore think lightly of the Savior.  He who has stood before his God, convicted and condemned, with rope about his neck, is the man to weep for joy when he is pardoned, to hate the evil which has been forgiven him, and to live to the honor of the Redeemer by whose blood he has been cleansed. [HT:  Dave Harvey]
