Having spent a good deal of time in the "get right with God room," I have been learning the value of coming clean with God quickly as prolonging this visit is merely giving the misery time to grow.
I read a piece dealing with life's realities.
From this page, I leaped on a statement that condenses the known wisdom of the world into a useful method if used early enough.
Here's the gem:
"The story of my life: I knew better, but I did it anyway."
Very few can approach the throne of Grace with an honest, "I didn't know." The knowledge is available from experience, observation, or, most importantly, from the Bible, God's word.
The first sinners could not know the difference between good and evil, but they did have God's Word directly to them to leave the "apple" alone.
When we approach God, let's be honest and ask for forgiveness.
