I'm the chiefest......

I Timothy 1:15
Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: 
Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners
of whom I am the worst.

Sin is something that we usually don't like to talk about....
but it's something we all do, if we're honest about it.
This little sign reminded me of something that I told a friend many years ago.
I might be wrong.....
but, I feel that when God looks down from heaven,
He sees the sinner.....
not necessarily the particular sin.
And, in spite of what He sees.....
He loves us anyway!!!


Matthew 7:3-4
“And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye 
when you have a log in your own?
 How can you think of saying to your friend,
 ‘Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ 
when you can’t see past the log in your own eye?

Breathing in Jesus,

Deb
