turn

It is our natural inclination to move away from people when we see their sins. We are rightly disgusted by sin, because we are image-bearers of God, and His law is written on our hearts.

Though natural, it is still not right.

May the sins of others turn our hearts away from our sins, not from each other.

If all of us were to be judged according to our sins, no one would be able to stand.

"We tremble at your power and bow before your unsearchable judgments and inscrutable ways. We cover our faces and kiss your omnipotent hand. So in this dark hour we turn against our sins, not against you."-John Piper
