Repentance doesn't mean self-condemnation
When I Was cooking dinner one evening, my then eight-year-old son asked me if I had ever stolen anything. "No," I said offhandedly. "Why?" "Oh, nothing," he answered. "I just remembered something that I've pushed to the back of my mind for a long time." I continued quietly preparing the meal and suddenly he burst into tears.
He confided that a year before, he had been in the supermarket near a large open container of gummy worms and had taken three of these sweets without paying for them. "And now," he sobbed, "I just feel so ashamed of myself."
