About 'Respectable Sins'

Often it is easy to see "big" sins in our lives and know that they are wrong, things like lying, cheating, stealing. In this series we want to open up the Bible to see what it says about sins like people pleasing, selfishness, jealousy, and laziness. There is no sin that is respectable, but culture may try to tell us otherwise. We want to learn how to respond to sin no matter what it might be.
