Be prepared to be humbled.
We who are believers tend to evaluate our character and conduct relative to the moral culture in which we live. Since we usually live at a higher moral standard than society at large, it is easy for us to feel good about ourselves and to assume that God feels that way too. We fail to reckon with the reality of sin still dwelling in us.
It does not matter whether our sin is scandalous or respectable, all our sin is sinful, only sinful, and altogether sinful. Whether it is large or small in our eyes, it is heinous in the sight of God.
The remedy for our sin, whether scandalous or acceptable, is the gospel.
