Caught Red Handed: 5 SHOCKING Sins You Commit Almost Daily!

As Christians, we try to keep away from sin, but how do we deal with sins that we might not know we are committing. Does not knowing whether you have sinned make it not a sin? As the famous quote goes, "Ignorance of the law excuses no one". With Bible study and daily devotionals, you will be able to understand the nature of sin better.

Let us look at 5 sins that you commit unknowingly.

Grudges

Leviticus 19:18

You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the sons of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself; I am the LORD.

Has someone hurt you or broken your trust in the past? Treating or wishing ill for someone is a sin. Bible verses say that if someone can’t love his neighbor whom he has seen how can he love God whom he has not seen. Being jealous of people’s success helps no one. If someone has done bad to you forgiveness is the best thing you can do. You must forgive others because God forgave you.

Gossip

James 1:26

If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless.

King James verses say that speaking ill, making up lies & revealing secrets about others is a sin. Christians must control their speech and speak the truth always.

Psychics

Leviticus 20:6

If a person turns to mediums and necromancers, whoring after them, I will set my face against that person and will cut him off from among his people.

Do you look at zodiac reading daily? Don’t be misled by the magic of sorcerers or fortune tellers, for they are not sent from God. Consult an online Bible to learn more about these sins.

Lust

Matthew 5:28

But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

You might think that there is nothing wrong with looking at attractive people; you could even find it pleasurable. Well, the bad news is that Bible verses tell us that sin by its very nature is hard to resist; the flesh is weak but the soul is willing. If you went back in time to look at the infidelity that a person has committed you realize that it all started with “just a look”. From that perspective, we can understand why Jesus said that looking with lust is the gateway to the sin of adultery.

Worry

Matthew 6:30

But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

The NIV Bible tells us that we must never worry once we are made new in Christ. No power of hell or scheme of man can take you away from God. Whenever you are anxious observed a flower. Its petals clothe it beautifully with intricate design, yet it is destroyed without a second thought. God loves us more than flowers; If He can clothe the flowers so beautifully how much more can He clothe you. Stop worrying and trust in Jesus, He will take care of you.

No sin is too great for God to forgive. Though we are all guilty of sin we are made new by the blood of Jesus. Ask for forgiveness and trust in Him.
