Have You Committed an Omission
August 8, 2008
“Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when
it is in your power to do it.” Proverbs 3:27
Sins of omission are subtle. Easy to fall into. Whereas you may
not be able to deny going out and getting drunk or cheating on
your spouse, there’s no “evidence” if you turn
a blind eye to someone in need, drop a “tip” rather
than a “tithe” into the offering plate as it is passed,
or forget to pray for family members, friends, neighbors, or missionaries.
- Have I been interceding in prayer as I should for
the people I know?
- Have I been giving financially as the Lord
- Have I been generous with my time, effort, and talents
to help those in need?
- If I have been withholding good that is
within my power to do, what am I going to do to change?
