Concealing Sins Leads to Trouble.

Being open with our faults, confessing our sin and turning a way from destruction behavior brings mercy. A pattern of concealing our sins hardens our heart. I have worked with people that were so conditioned by sin that they cannot distinguish between the truth and a lie. They seem disconnected and distant from the people around them, even the people they love - if they can still love them. A harden heart finds it difficult to respect anyone, even God. Without the fear of God to temper their behavior they find themselves in trouble.

Proverbs 28:13,14

          He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and
          renounces them finds mercy. Blessed is the man who always fears the
          LORD, but he who hardens his heart falls into trouble.

  1. I wonder if "trouble" means once you harden your heart, God cannot save you from your own destruction. I wonder to what degree sin separates us from God.
