repentance

keynote templete.001

This is how I think repentance works. When we’re truly sorry for our wrongs, we acknowledge them, we speak the truth, and then we go about the work of making things right and embracing change. Lesson learned. Our wrongs fade and become faint wisps of our past. The truth sets us free.

But when we tell lie after lie to justify or cover up our dirty deeds, and point blame to others, our offenses only increase, they never go away, and in the end they bind us.
