I used to have a poster of a sad-looking puppy with the caption, “Nobody’s perfect.” So very true. We’re trapped down here in human bodies. Our spirits are so often willing, but our flesh is weak. We mess up. In other words, we sin. And when we sin, we need to push aside the world’s penchant for blaming somebody else or making excuses and tell God we’re sorry. With forgiveness comes cleansing.
