Shame

Guilt. Shame. You’ve felt the feelings before, and, more than likely, after experiencing guilt and shame, you wanted to avoid those feelings again. No one likes knowing that they are to blame for something that’s gone wrong. Nevertheless, these two emotions are crucial pieces of forgiveness. Indeed, we should attempt to avoid what causes them — sin — but at the same time, when we do feel guilty because of what we have done, it’s important to acknowledge that this emotion occurs by God’s design.
