As Christians, what sin(s) do you feel you struggle MOST with?

An interesting thing about those who are forgiven much, as compared to those who are forgiven little ...


Luk 7:47
Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, [the same] loveth little.

I wonder how Simon felt when Jesus said that.

Well, Jesus said that ,"If you have faith the size of a mustard seed you can move mountains". I'm not moving many these days. My biggest sin by far and I think most Christians also is not putting our entire faith and trust in God and His promises to us.

Jesus summed up the entire law of God by telling us that we should Love the Lord with all of our being and to love our neighbour, {ALL OTHERS} as ourselves. If we were faithful in these things then I don't think we would have to much to worry about in relation to other sins.

Me first.

Anger. I didn't think this was something I struggled with until recently. I almost NEVER show anger outwardly, but it bubbles up inside of me quite a bit. Many times this has to do with other peoples driving abilities.

Vanity. I am vain, I've gotten better tho. I think.

Drinking. I have been known to get tipsy.

I'm sure there are lots of others. I've (well Jesus really) successfully overcome some of the really grave sin in my life so I know there is hope for me to overcome the rest.

I mean I used to be REALLY bad. I'm a lot better now. I honestly can take no credit for it tho. Jesus instantly healed me of many of my sinful desires so that things I used to think I could not live without, I now hate.

You?
I don't "struggle" with any. I know and recognize that I'm going to sin, and accept my nature as it is.

Being unable to love others as Jesus loves me. I'm working on it. It was His commandment.
