Black, White and Shades of Grey

We live in a society where the lines have become blurred.  There is no right or wrong answer, but we try to play nice and appease both sides.  We answer in ways that never answer the question because we know if we take a side, someone will be offended. 

Some people see the world in black and white.  There is the right way and the wrong.  Purity and sin. 

We justify our actions before God and before ourselves.  “He’s only going to go buy a drink if I give him anything.”  “I’m just one person, what difference can I really make?”  “Someone else will stop and help.”  Sound familiar? 

We tell ourselves that one sin is worse than another, even after we read where Christ told his disciples that thinking about the action is just as bad as committing the act.  We reassure ourselves saying, “I only cursed at the guy, I didn’t kill him.”  Does that make it any better?

When it comes to sin, there is only black and white.  Purity that we can never achieve on our own and all the shades of grey, no matter how light they seem.  It is still sin.  It is still impure in the eyes of God. 

I’m not perfect.  I’ll be the first to say it.  I sin.  I fall short. 

But when we live in the light of Christ, as true followers of His way, we shouldn’t have to worry.  The blood of Christ has washed away our sins, our impurities, no matter how dark they were. 

If we are truly striving to follow God, we should be striving for purity.  So why are we settling for shades of grey?

Just some thoughts…

God Bless and PEACE
