A set of universal oughts to which we hold others accountable
Liars don’t like being lied to.
Thieves don’t like being stolen from.
People who “don’t do” guilt are adamant regarding the guilt of others.
We can’t stop holding others accountable to an external standard we sometimes ignore ourselves.

Something in common
We all fall short.
We’ve all been invited to embrace the same solution.
“‘We’re tired of fooling with you.’”-Ruth Graham
“‘We told you not to do it.’” - Ruth Graham
“‘You’ve embarrassed us.’”-Ruth Graham
“You don’t want to your father.”
“You really don’t want to embarrass Billy Graham.” - Ruth Graham
“‘Welcome home.’” -Ruth Graham
Heavenly Father, I have fallen short.
I am more than a mistaker.
I am a sinner who needs a Savior.
I place my faith in Jesus’s death on the cross as payment for my sin.
For Discussion:
1.Growing up, when you heard the term “sin,” what came to mind?
2.Did Billy Graham’s response to his daughter mirror the way you were taught God views and responds to sinners?
3.When did it first dawn on you that you needed a Savior?
