Defining “Sin”

September 5, 2011

My sin is more than

Bad behavior

A bad choice

Wrong words.

My sin is a violation of the relationship

That I was meant to have with You.

My sin is an act

Where I replace You

With something I love more.

Every wrong thing I do

Reflects

A lack of love for You,

Reflects

A love of self.

 

– Paul David Tripp, Whiter Than Snow, p. 60.
