Reconcile, September 20, 2018 Daily Reflection

My Peace Dove

At one point in time I thought that sin distanced me from God. I have come to understand the deeper meaning of sin. It harms my relationship with myself, which in turn harms my relationship with God. If I am not right with me, I can’t be right with God. Those obsessions, addictions, or bad choices lead down paths that are damaging to the ability to love others completely. When we are obsessed or addicted we have turned in on ourselves. From that inward vantage point we can no longer love selflessly. Reconciling is reconnecting, apologizing, forgiving and making right again our relationship with self and in turn with God.
