Hebrews 12:1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
I have again been reminded in the last couple weeks of "The sin that so easily entangles." I had to terminate a gentleman for smoking pot in one of the apartments. Another resident got arrested and charged with a DWI. It is times like this that I wonder what is going on? Why can't men get past their old life and the sin that so easily entangles.
And then I see a Facebook post entitled "Every Careless Word" pertaining to Matthew 12:36 "But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgement for every empty word they have spoken." And then I think, why can't I get past the sin that easily entangles. Sin is sin, no matter what category we humans put them in.
Please continue to be in prayer for the men, board and staff of KBPA. It is the prayers of "the great cloud of witnesses" that will be heard by our Father and sustain us all as we walk alongside fellow brothers and sisters, no matter their past.
Thank you for all the prayers and your support.
Lord, may I respond in obedience and share Your love with others as You have loved me - God's love restores.
