Shame and conviction are not the same. Shame causes you to question your value and worth while labeling you as unlovable due to the mistake you made. Conviction calls you to a higher standard and reminds you that you are a child of God who knows better. It’s important that we don’t mask self-punishment and shame as conviction! Conviction is healthy in our walk with God, it’s the way we grow and leave behind habits of sin!
