- Saw something helpful from Sinclair Ferguson on mortifying sin. Let's call sin what it is. Don't say "I stumbled." Say, "I broke God's holy law." Don't say "I fell."

Unless we see sin for what it is, we won't be appalled by it and won't deal with it radically as we ought. (That's my version of one of the points he makes in the article.)
