Someone recently asked me to define "sin"... EASY!
The Greek word is "hamartia" and it means "to miss the mark"...
But that is not how I define it. As I have worked with people now for many years, and of course have lived many years, the best definition I have ever come up with is "INSANITY".
Sin is "INSANITY".
We as a people know those sinful things are not right, not good for us, not helpful to the ones we love, disrespecting to our Father Who loves us, and yet we still do them!!! INSANITY!
Please know that you will NEVER be able to understand, figure out, or find an answer for "why" someone does something that hurts you or you do something that hurts yourself. Sin is INSANE!
And please know and praise God that He continues to love insane people...LIKE ME!
