take sin seriously

Acts 8


Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.

Simon's wrong speech came a from wrong thought, which came from a wrong heart. He wasn't supposed to pray for forgiveness for saying it, but for the thought. When we recognize sin in our lives, we should recognize it all the way to the root of the problem in our hearts.

When we sin, even if it seems small to us, it's very important to recognize that it's our wickedness, and repent of it, and pray to the Lord for forgiveness.
