Do you ever take time to admit your sins? Doing so in the proper way is biblical and spiritually healthy. How ever, wisdom should be a part of such intentions.
David covered this in Psalm 32:1-5, actually the entirety of Psalm 31 and 32. Here’s a key verse:
“I acknowledged my sin to You, and my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,” and You forgave the iniquity of my sin.” Selah=pause and ponder.
The “Selah” is there for the benefit of readers due to the fact that David knew the curiosity of many in his time and ours could cause more trouble than the particular sin.
He seems to be advising discretion in revealing details.
W.A. Criswell stated: “Irreparable damage can be done by indiscreet confession of sin.”
He spoke the truth gained from years of pastoring large churches.
