Two areas of our life call for balance, being oversensitive to sin or being oblivious to it. The sway of the culture will attack us in one of those two ways. When we are oversensitive toward sin, we tend to live in a state of guilt and unworthiness before God. When we are oblivious toward sin, we tend to live in a state of entitlement and pride. These two attitudes become very apparent whenever the individual faces the threats and dangers of life. Those who live with guilt, often approach adversity alone because they feel God is punishing them, while those with pride approach difficulty as an opportunity to demonstrate their spirituality. Both approaches, however, are wrong. How, then, should we approach these life issues? What should our attitude be when the swell of deep waters overwhelm our life?
