Temptation to Wash Away My Own Sins!

I am guilty!
I judge others, especially when I catch them in a sin!!

Lord, please forgive me!

Not one soul on this planet is sin-free...including me.
It is so hard to remember, that although there are others out there who commit sins that appear so much worse than those I admit to committing, that mine are JUST AS BAD in God's eyes!

I am so quick to dismiss my own sins, as they are compared to those who commit deadly sins.

How many times do you see someone on the news who has committed murder, stolen, or committed sex crimes, and then compare your own undoings to theirs, thinking, "I'm not so bad."

That in and of itself is a sin!

We need to say a prayer for those who commit such awful crimes, but we need to pray to our Lord for forgiveness for thinking we are any better than they are.

I sin, every day. I hate to admit it - but I know I do. I am not perfect, even when I try. I am so glad that the Lord understands this, and forgives me when I ask Him for forgiveness.

Don't forget, YOU MUST ASK Him to receive this most wonderful blessing!

Dear Lord,
Please forgive me for my transgressions. I have sinned against you, and my fellow man, with the thoughts and actions I have committed. I strive to live for You, Lord, in everything I do. Please forgive me when I falter.

Please Lord, forgive me for judging my fellow man, when I know this is Your task, Father. It is not my place to judge, lest I be judged. I live for the day You will judge me, and wipe me clean of all my sins.


Galatians 6:1 "Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted."


  1. Good reminders. Did you ever read Lies Women Believe by Nancy Leigh Demoss?
    She talks about this and says that we need to remember that every sin is an act of cosmic treason. Our gossip, bad attitude, neglecting the Word, etc is just as bad as the things we turn our nose up at.

    Although, we know consequences are definitely different.

  2. Malissa - I have never read that! I'm putting it on my library list right now, though! :) Thanks!
