The Strange Thing about Guilt – Crumbs

knowledge

“The knowledge of sin is the beginning of salvation.” Latin Proverb

 senses

The senses deceive from time to time, and it is prudent never to trust wholly those who have deceived us even once. Rene Descartes

 

     napoleon-bonaparte-madame-tussaud-s-20615386    “The strong man is the one who is able to intercept at will the communication between the senses and the mind.” Napoleon Bonaparte

 

shame

“The wish to relieve guilt may motivate a confession, but the wish to avoid the humiliation of shame may prevent it.” Paul Ekman

 “The guilty is he who meditates a crime; the punishment is his who lays the plot.” Conte Vittorio Alfieri

 

boundaries

“How do we balance yes and no appropriately? By saying no to the things that are not good for you, and yes to the things that are good for you . . . Appropriate boundaries create integrity.”  Holy Sparks – “Giving Quotes: Setting Healthy Boundaries”

strength

We gain the strength of the temptation we resist.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

confession

“Forgiveness is always free. But that doesn’t mean that confession is always easy. Sometimes it is hard. Incredibly hard. It is painful to admit our sins and entrust ourselves to God’s care.” Erwin Lutzer

“Do not let sin control the way you live, do not give in to sinful desires. . . Instead give yourselves completely to God, for you were dead, but now you have new life. . . Sin is no longer your master, for you no longer live under the requirements of the law. . . Instead, you live under the freedom of God’s grace.” Portions of Romans 6:12-14 NLT
