What is sin? Is it doing something naughty? Or, is it greater than that – is it anything that separates us from God?
If sin is an act of hurt, an attitude of selfishness, or a community of thoughtlessness, then sin is great indeed.
If that then, is the enormity of sin, how much greater must be the grace of God, to cover it all…
And all the wickedness in the world that man might work or think is no more to the mercy of God than a live coal in the sea”
– William Langland
