Ezra 10:12–The all the assembly replied with a loud voice, “That’s right! As you have said, so it is our duty to do so.”
The people had been confronted with their sin. Their response was to fall in agreement and commit to making it right. When we are confronted with sin, do we make excuses and try to justify our behavior? Or, do we accept and acknowledge our ways and seek to make them right?
Lord, when I have wronged You, I want to not waste time and energy making excuses, but just acknowledge Your Lordship and do what You would have me do to repent.
