“Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings” (Genesis 3:7).

The first attempted cover up of wrongs committed wasn’t Nixon at Watergate but Adam and Eve in the Garden. Instead of our sins turning us toward God, human tendency is to turn away and cover our backs by casting blame and making excuses. Only by taking ownership of our sins are we able to discover reconciliation, redemption, and the opportunity to move forward.
