You see, over the last several decades, manufacturers have gradually increased size measurements, meaning a size 10 in 1960 is now size 2 or 4.
It's called "vanity sizing," and it's another sign of our human problem:
we'd rather fool ourselves than face our sins.
- When we're judgmental, we say we're discerning.
- When we forget responsibilities, we say we're busy.
- When we lose our temper, we say we're stressed.
We're size 14 sinners squeezing into size 0 excuses, deceiving ourselves instead of fully experiencing God's wonderful forgiveness.
"If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:8-9
Now that's a one-size-fits-all promise!
