It is a sad, but prevailing, characteristic of the world today that there is a general disbelief for the need for repentance. Each of us sees ourselves as justified in our own eyes (to a greater or lesser degree) – we know that we are trying to do what is right and if it weren’t for this and that or so and so we wouldn’t have the problems that we currently face.
But this is not a new problem. Of note, there has only been one perfect person – everyone else falls short. So there are really only two types of people – not the righteous and the wicked but rather those that repent and those who do not. It is essential that we find ourselves among the former.
