Several years ago a new product called "Disposable Guilt Bags" appeared in the supermarkets. It consisted of a set of ten ordinary brown bags on which were printed the following instructions: "Place the bag securely over your mouth, take a deep breath and blow all your guilt out, then dispose of the bag immediately." The amazing thing about this is that the Associated Press reported that 2,500 kits had been quickly sold at $2.50 per kit.

Wouldn't it be great if we could dispose of our guilt so easily? Unfortunately, though, there is nothing on this earth powerful enough in itself to dispose of our guilt. We cannot fix ourselves, which is what many are trying to do.

(From a sermon by Mark Opperman, God's Plan For Your Good, 5/23/2011)
