This weekend must have been one aimed at all the things I do wrong.\u00a0 First, a friend spoke on archery.\u00a0 He talked about how archers would shoot their arrows at a target far away.\u00a0 Someone near the target would check and if he missed then they yelled "Sin!".\u00a0 Sin is when we 'miss the mark' of perfection and do not obey God.\u00a0 I certainly miss the mark quite often. Then on Sunday night in Youth Group, our topic was on how our sin separates us from God.\u00a0 Psalm 5:4 says, "You are not a God who takes pleasure in evil; with You the wicked cannot dwell."\u00a0 God cannot stand to be around sin.\u00a0 The speaker that evening said, "God hates sin with the red hot passion of 10,000 white suns times 10,000".\u00a0 That's pretty hot!\u00a0 It certainly resonated with us all that God definitely hates sin. Romans 6:23 tells us that "The wages (payment) for sin is death".\u00a0 Sin has resulted in physical death and an eternal punishment of suffering death.\u00a0 But this only comes to those who have sinned or "missed the mark".\u00a0 Who is that?\u00a0 Well, Romans 3:23 says, "...all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God".\u00a0 No person can make it into heaven on their own merit because no one can reach the goal. Sunday night I had four teens come up and attempt to do 300 push-ups in 1 minute.\u00a0 No one came close.\u00a0 Some gave up early, while others pushed forward to see just how many they could do in one minute.\u00a0 But whether they did 20 push-ups or 120, they didn't reach the mark.\u00a0 Neither can you or I.\u00a0 We're all sinners.\u00a0 We've all missed the mark. So when you look at someone who's a sinner, realize that you're one to. When someone struggles with temptation or addiction over and over again, remember that you have struggles with temptation as well.\u00a0 When someone admits that they need help to overcome a sin, don't forget that you do to.\u00a0 We all suffer from missing the mark so show some love and compassion toward your fellow human being who's struggling right alongside you.
