A letter from a woman to a newspaper advice column described serious indiscretions during her college days involving incriminating pictures of her. Although now happily married, and having revealed these secrets to her husband, she worried that with today’s technology, the pictures could be anywhere. She ended with a plea to warn young people to think before doing something that could follow them throughout their lifetime. This woman’s honesty and warning may be helpful. Thankfully, when we admit our wrong-doing and then confess to the Lord, while there may be unpleasant implications from our actions, the Lord has promised forgiveness. King David revealed God’s merciful response to his moral failures, writing, “I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, I will confess my transgression to the Lord and you forgave…my sin.” And today, anyone troubled by past or present indiscretions can turn to the good Lord, and receive forgiveness.
