True Repentance


"One who admits his sins verbally, but has not decided to abandon them, is like a person who immerses in a mikvah while holding an impure entity - the immersion is ineffective until he casts away the impure entity. It is written, 'Gd will have mercy upon a person who admits and abandons his sin.'"

(Maimonides, Mishneh Torah, Laws of Repentance 2:3)

Have a great day,
