Repentance is a word that makes some people uncomfortable because it means admitting we’ve made a mistake. We’re like Fonzie from Happy Days, who struggled to say “I was wr-wr-wr-…” He’d finally blurt, “Not right.” Repentance is humbling, but it is also cleansing. Repentance is healing. Repentance leads to everlasting life, leaving us free of the dark mar of sin. Repentance isn’t a negative word by any means. (Photo compliments of Phoebe Janzen)
