Doing things that we would consider to be sin is frowned upon, but so is having an honest, vulnerable conversation about sin in our lives—or the life of a friend. Ever since sin entered the world, it has bound God’s image-bearers in shackles of shame. We hide when we feel shame. We avoid people. We don’t talk about things that provoke a sense of shame in us. But talking honestly with trusted friends about sin can bring light into darkness, which will lead to freedom and peace. Something God wants for all of us!
