If we say that we have no sin, “we are deceiving ourselves” (1 John 1:8, NASB, emphasis added).
When God’s man tries to keep secrets, sick qualities enter his character, and he isolates himself from both his Creator and the people who need him most. The Lord wants us to open up. He wants to help us if we will let Him.
Openness is to healing what secrets are to sickness.
I am confronted with two alternatives: I
can keep hiding or I can risk being found
out. The choice has a lot riding on it. Today
I will choose openness with God and with
others who matter in my life.
