Everyman's Shame - A Story (Part 1)

A man who wears the white garments of his King must surrender his shame before he is released from his shackles.

Shame is a reminder of our sin, and in Christ, all our sin is forgiven us.

Letting go of sin is something I’ve struggled with, so yesterday I wrote the first part of a story about a man who carried a burden of shame and didn’t want to let it go, but also didn’t want others to know that he carried it.

The light blinded him,
and he blinked.

Rising from his seat on the ground,
Everyman almost stumbled under the
weight of an immense load on his back.
