This morning I was reading Proverbs 28 and I spent some time in verse 13:
“He who covers his sins will not prosper,
But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.”
I have read this verse lots of times. It is even highlighted in my bible. But today it struck me. I went on to read the commentary in my bible, The New Geneva Study Bible. Here is what I read:
-The orderliness and well being in one person’s life is linked to an intensely personal relationship with God.
-Unconfessed sin is the ultimate disorder in life.
-Confession and repentance lead to a restoration of a right relationship with God, based on mercy (Psalm 32:1-4, 1 John 1:6-9). All other relationships depend on this.
So today I am meditating on this and contemplating its meaning in my life presently. Won’t you share what you do to keep that intensely personal relationship with God?
