The greatest of faults, I should say, is to be conscious of none. (Thomas Carlyle, 19th century Scottish philosopher)

Confession is really difficult for some people. They have a hard time admitting their mistakes. In their minds, they are never wrong. They’re like the Fonz in the old TV comedy, Happy Days. He simply could not say “I’m wrong.” The words just wouldn’t come out of his mouth. How much better to acknowledge our weaknesses and work to improve them.

Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy (Proverbs 28:13).
