Lent is a time to look inwardly and to ask forgiveness for our sins.

One of the most moving characters in biblical history is Simon Peter.  We all find comfort in identifying with his denial of Jesus followed by his deep remorse.
Some of us commit the sin of not speaking up when we know something is inherently wrong.
Some of us speak up when we should be silent.
Some of us cherry pick sins.  
Some of us aren’t comfortable with the publican who prayed, “God, be merciful to me a sinner.”
And if you think you have no sins perhaps you’ve done a good snow job on yourself!
The wonderful thing is our God is ready to forgive our sins:  all the little ones, the big ones, those that are black or perhaps gray.
