“In Hebrew, that is kha-ta’ ‚Äì what we call “sin,” our world-wide, pervasive proclivity to mess up. We often hear it defined as “missing the mark” as though our trouble is just a matter of not being perfect enough (nowhere in Scripture does it say that!). An arrow that goes shy of the bull’s eye. Bt such trivializes God. It hints at His being overly fussy, and petty in His expectations for humans. Whereas, kha-ta is not just a matter of missing perfection. More aptly, it’s a matter of missing GOD’s aim in a given situation. Or then, even worse – missing His full purposes for our lives.”
