James 5

James 5:16
Confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed.

We are not naturally inclined to do anything of the sort. If we listen to our flesh, we’ll duck and weave. If we abide by our instinct, we’ll run and hide. It’s just the way we are. To reveal our faults to one another? No thank you. But to become a true community, this is a glitch we’ll need to overcome. Nothing draws us together more than admitting our weaknesses and failures to one another. True healing only comes within the context of humility.
