Things you don’t repent of… but should – #1

I came across a very helpful list in Murray G. Brett’s book “Growing Up In Grace” that is taken from the Church of Scottland’s 1651 “Humble acknowledgement of the sins of the ministry.”  The list struck me as important, VERY important… so I’m going to make a series of posts, each containing 1 or 2 of these things you and I don’t typically repent over, but should.

  1. Acting to, from, and for ourselves rather than to, from, and for our God.
  2. Seeking a name for self rather than the honor of Christ.
  3. Trusting our natural abilities or past successes rather than depending on the Spirit.

Are there any you would add?
