Sin Is Not Only What We Do

Sin Is Not Only What We Do

Sin is not only what we do, it is what we do not do. How many sins have we committed due to omission? It is not enough to avoid doing wrong. We must also do what is right.

An example from our bodies: It is not enough to avoid eating things that are bad for us. We must also eat things that are good for us. Otherwise, the body starves.

Likewise with our spirits and souls. It is not enough to avoid the things that are bad for our spirits and souls. We must also feed our spirits and souls with what is good and healthy. Otherwise, our souls and spirits starve.

How do we know what is bad and what is good? What is unhealthy and what is healthy? If we had a device, we would turn to the manufacturer and the manual for how to maintain and repair that device. In like manner, we turn to our “manufacturer”…to our Creator…and to the manual given to us in order to understand how to live and how to fix that which is broken within us.
