One of the most powerful and devastating forces in the world is the emotion of shame.
Multitudes around the globe are carrying heavy burdens of shame. Some are ashamed because of their own sinful conduct. Some carry shame because it has been imposed upon them by others who have condemned them. Still others have inherited a cycle of shameful behavior or feelings from their parents. Shame is an emotion that will keep you forever shackled to the past. It will prevent you from rising up to fulfill your God-given destiny.
