1 Samuel 15:23a Rebellion is as sinful as witchcraft, and stubbornness as bad as worshiping idols.
This just made me acutely aware that we have to stay aware that all sin is sin. No matter how the world classifies sin, to God a sin, is a sin, is a sin. So we must be very careful of the most harmful kind of lie, the lie s we tell ourselves. We must not spend time convincing ourselves that any sin justified because of this reason or that reason. Instead we must talk to God and ourselves about how to do better the next time a similar situation arises.
