that adam thing runs so deep within us.  i’m noticing in my own life how easy it is to work so hard in life not to be wrong.  it’s really bondage!  it doesn’t help that we live in a culture that aspires to be perpetually right all the time as well.  who is wrong enough from time to time to admit it?  we christians have been deposited into this “right” all the time culture in order to communicate humility, healthy regret, confession and grace.  when you’re wrong today what are you going to say and do? 

in order to stay consistent in the father’s will we must develop a healthy regret response to life versus living a lie.  God is pleased with a regretful, changed heart.  Christ came to seek out after lost people who have the capacity to repent and come to him.  let’s model a “regretful change of heart” lifestyle when we sin so that the world can come to an open-arms savior.
