¿Excusas o arrepentimiento?

¿Excusas o arrepentimiento?
Las excusas corroen las relaciones humanas, debilitan el carácter y evitan que confiemos en Dios. La actitud del que encuentra excusas suele ser buscar culpables en lugar de buscar a Dios en arrepentimiento. El arrepentimiento trae esperanza, mientras que las excusas causan que nos sintamos frustrados y con la necesidad de culpar a otros. En Proverbios 28:13, el Espíritu Santo describe así la diferencia entre ambas actitudes: "El que encubre sus pecados no prosperará; Mas el que los confiesa y se aparta alcanzará misericordia". Encubrir nuestros pecados (es decir, buscar excusas) des...

She’s no longer with us

She’s no longer with us
I wasn’t aware until today when they told me. Luz Maria died Saturday during the night. She was a young woman with a promising future and a husband that loved her dearly. All of her family will miss her very much. I didn’t know her but I did know her husband. This evening I was in the chapel at her viewing. Just two days ago she had plans and activities.

I knew she was a Christian and that she had spoken with Luz Mar...
