10 # Short Commentary and Lesson from Psalm 38.18
We cannot truly repent, and therefore be forgive until we understand what sin is and what it has become within our hearts. Do you realize how dangerous it is to be separated from God? Sin is turning away from God and disobeying his commands, which builds a wall of separation between God and humanity.
But this knowledge is useless until we see that our own lives – our actions and our thoughts – make us sinners before God. We may recognize and condemn the sins of others, but we must examine ourselves as well. now is the time to look within, express our sorrow for our sins, and receive God’s forgiveness
