It is easier to confess our sins to God. I know I have a very hard time admitting that I have done something wrong. I think it is because when I do, I feel as if I am being judged. I think that we should look at our past sins and transgressions as learning experiences for others. Suppose we come upon someone who is committing a sin that we were once guilty of committing. If we tell someone, ‘I know just how you feel,’ but we do not share with them why we know how they feel; then they may look at our advice or assistance far differently than if we have confessed our sins to them. We can show them, though they are sinning, they still have a chance for a fulfilling Christian lifestyle.
Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. ~ Matthew 7:1-2
