Shame enjoys adding salt to the wounds that guilt has created. Shame’s kind of like that little brother that adds insult to injury – whispering to you and I the possibility of humiliation and embarrassment if you tell anyone about your sin. Shame is always inviting you to play its favorite game. It’s a game you and I are very familiar with, except, instead of calling the game Hide n Seek; Shame would call it Hide and never be found.

And you and I weren’t created by God to be people who hide or avoid dealing with our sin, even if we might be embarrassed by it. God has created for you a safe place, a relationship with Jesus to lift and relieve the weight of shame… because you weren’t meant to carry it
