Things that only sound repentant

turn around Then Pharaoh hastily called Moses and Aaron and said, "I have sinned against the LORD your God, and against you. Now therefore, forgive my sin, please, only this once, and plead with the LORD your God only to remove this death from me."

Exodus 10:16-17

Repentance leads to action, so beware of

hasty confessions in the heat of the moment,

flowery words with no promise of action,

fear of consequence with no remorse to make it right,

admissions of guilt without responsibility to change,

desire to not suffer sin’s punishment without keeping God’s demand for righteousness.
