Lamentations 3:39-40 Why should any living mortal, or any man, offer complaint in view of his sins? Let us examine and probe our ways, and let us return to the LORD.
That rather seems to put us in our place, doesn't it. The prophet doesn't mince his words. Bearing in mind our (many) sins (personal, corporate and national), what on earth position do we have to complain about anything. It is a miracle we are still alive.
But he offers a critical hope: be honest about ourselves and repent. This will require hard work to do a thorough inventory and check everything. But it is the only way to be clear.
Start today and don't delay!
