Step 10

10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

But how can I ever know what sins are lurking in my heart? Cleanse me from these hidden faults. And keep me from deliberate wrongs; help me to stop doing them. Only then can I be set free of guilt.”  Psalm 19:12

We’ve only just begun!  We now need to keep repeating the process of taking a candid look at our lives and writing mini-inventories!  Now that our record has been cleared by Christ, we need to KEEP it obstacle-free in order to keep the joy flowing!  Our newfound serenity can’t afford any more resentments!  When we realize we err, the faster we can admit it and ask forgiveness, the freer WE will be.
