A Meditation: On Proverbs 14:9 // Do Not Mock A Sin //

by Matheus Yuhlung

“Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous there is favour” – Proverbs 14:9

Not acknowledging a sin just because it does not appeal to you to have much influence on your life is mocking the very amendments made for the rectification of the image that sin had marred. Such is the way of a fool; it does not compliment a Christian.

To say that ‘I’m just a human being; I’m not perfect’ should be no excuse to snub away a sin. It is the way of the wise to acknowledge a sin as a sin no matter how trifling it may sound; it is only through then, that a road is paved for confession and repentance.
