Many times I have tried to run away from unpleasant circumstances only to discover that the problem was not the situation I was in but me. Since Adam and Eve hid after sinning, we’ve all followed their example. We run away from situations thinking we can escape the unpleasantness—only to discover that the unpleasantness is us. The only way to escape ourselves is to stop sinning, acknowledge our waywardness, and let Jesus wash us clean. I am grateful that when we do sin, Jesus is willing to give us a brand-new start. Sin’s contamination requires the Savior’s cleansing.
