Psalm 10:3

Psalm 10:3
The wicked even boast of their greed; these robbers curse and scorn the Lord.

It is one thing for people to sin and do wrong but it is a completely different thing for people to do wrong and then b proud of it.  When someone does evil I think that maybe they are trying to do good but was pressured or maybe they are ashamed of what they did and feel sorry for them but when someone does evil and then boasts about it I have a much harder time not casting judgement on them.  I feel that we have gotten to a much lower place when we do not try to hid and correct the things that we do wrong but when we see them as something commonplace, something that we should not be ashamed of or something that we should boast about.
Some evils in society have become so commonplace that we almost don't realize that they are wrong or that they are something that we should try to avoid.  We think of them as just an everyday part of life.  This can eventually lead to people not even realizing that they are sinning.  How could it be wrong if everyone does it?

Dear Lord, Help me to be able to differentiate between right and wrong and help me to set a good example for other people.
