On the first day of class in my Old Testament course, the teacher had has open our Bibles to Genesis 9. After slowly reading it, he folded his hands and rested them on his desk.
“Talking about the Bible in a group is vulnerable. Let’s all agree to extend grace to one another in this classroom and walk in backwards.”
How do you respond when you stumble across someone in the midst of their sin? If you’ll notice, no one in this story is in more trouble than Moses’ son who exploits his father’s vulnerability and nakedness. This is DEEPLY sinful, the seeing and telling of your father’s shame.
What does it look like to walk in backwards?
How do we have gracious hearts with one another’s sin?
