Today’s Verse of the Day:

If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just [true to His own nature and promises], and will forgive our sins and cleanse us continually from all unrighteousness [our wrongdoing, everything not in conformity with His will and purpose].

1 John 1:9 AMP

Admit Freely:

Firstly, let’s be the dads who are the first to notice and the first to admit when we miss the mark so that we don’t have to wait for others to call it out or point it out! Secondly, let’s be the dads who confess when we have missed the mark and turn back to God! Finally, let’s be prepared to receive from God because He is faithful and just, true to His own nature and promises and so will forgive our sins and cleanse us continually from all unrighteousness, our wrongdoing, everything not in conformity with His will and purpose!

So how can we put into practice today’s verse of the day? Are there applications for admitting when we mess up?
