Respectable Sins

Based on Jerry Bridges book Respectable Sins here is a list you might find
interesting. Each is an attitude or behavior that we tend to accept as just
the way we are, often never thinking that they are actually sins. Read the
list. Maybe you will want to read the book.

Ungodliness
Anxiety & Frustration
Discontentment
Unthankfulness
Pride
Selfishness
Lack of Self-Control
Impatience & Irritability
Anger
Judgmentalism
Envy & Jealousy
Sins of the Tongue
Wordliness

Here is the book it you think you might need to read it. I keep this list stapled to my bulletin board and try to read it occasionally.
