Not too long ago I met with a group of men. We regularly gather to discuss life and struggles and victories. During our conversation, I could sense that Sam felt unnerved and uncomfortable. We had discussed pornography for a few moments but then moved on to other topics. But I sensed that Sam was disappointed we had moved on so quickly. Though it’s a hard topic, and not a fun one to discuss, I think Sam recognized an opportunity to come clean. Something was weighing on him. Yet, the rest of us guys didn’t address it. We let the conversation progress and eventually went our separate ways. As I drove home I wondered about Sam. I wondered about our discussion. Why don’t we talk about the things that really haunt us? Why do we encourage one another to keep sin in the closet by not bringing things out in the open? We keep darkness in our lives behind closed doors. It convicted me. The Bible tells us to walk in the light as Jesus is in the light. And yet we often keep things hidden in shadowy corners. If we want to truly reach our world, we can’t have things hiding in the shadows. We need to bring light to all areas of our lives. Let’s make a resolution to not fail one another by allowing sin to lurk. This is Andrew Palau.
