He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.
Proverbs 28:13 (NIV)

Sunday, October 31
It’s true that when we fail to admit our mistakes, try to hide our sins, or neglect to renounce our wrongdoings, we do not prosper in life. Lord God, in You we find the mercy and compassion that we need for every season of life.
