Timmy Brister lists six ways we can minimize the sin that is in our lives. The six ways he mentions are:

  1. Defending
  2. Pretending
  3. Hiding
  4. Blaming
  5. Minimizing
  6. Exaggerating

God help us not to minimize the very thing that separated us from YOU and that sent Christ to the cross in order that we might be set free from the penalty and power of sin. Help us to hate sin. Help us to despise that which is evil and cling to that which is good.
