Hebrews 4:13 – And before God no creature is hidden, but all are naked and laid bare to the eyes of the one to whom we must render an account.
Step Five of Alcoholics Anonymous reads: Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs. Obviously, God is aware of our shortcomings, but it is also important for us to be able to be vulnerable to one another.
Understanding God, help us to be empathetic listeners to one another. Amen.
