Haiku Challenge Day 16

Not a fun word--SIN. 
No one wants to own up to
their own wrongdoing.

We are not perfect, not one.
Or this world would be more fun,
with no one doing wrong
and no one having to be right.

Not a fun word--SIN.
No one wants to own up, be
honest with themselves.

Now if we would honest be,
telling ourselves the truth,
We would ourselves be free
from the quilt that is the proof.

And furthermore . . . 
 it is my conviction that sin is against a loving holy creator.
Psalms 51:3-6
3 For I know my transgressions,
and my sin is always before me.
4 Against you, you only, have I sinned
and done what is evil in your sight,
so that you are proved right when you speak
and justified when you judge.
5 Surely I was sinful at birth,
sinful from the time my mother conceived me.
6 Surely you desire truth in the inner parts; you teach me wisdom in the inmost place.
New International Version of the Bible

Psalm 51 is one of my favorites, because it is so raw and honest.

sin is disconnection, a painful thing.

It is not a fun word indeed. It takes courage and a open heart to be open to forgiveness ~
