It is something that you used to hear a lot as sort of a throwaway line: "you should be ashamed of yourself."
Christine stumbled across this tee shirt I hope she acquires for me soon that says, "Surely they weren't ALL Kung Fu Fighting..."
I've studied shame and cage-fought it on and off throughout my time on planet earth. I win way more than shame does these days, to be sure--but I've also found its concrete, Biblical antidote.
This morning I was doing this word study and I ended up re-discovering two words in my ZODHIATES Key Word Study Bible.
1) one Hebrew word for shame is pronounced buwsh in Zodhiates key word breakdown of the Strongs concordance #954 and it means to be/feel ashamed, to make ashamed, to be disappointed. The word appears in the context of humiliation and shattered human emotions.
I was arrested by this phrase: "The opposite meaning is trusting God."
What Zodhiates says about trust--a la "trust in the Lord with all your heart" is equally delightful.
It is Hebrew #982 and it means to attach yourself, to trust, to confide in, to feel safe, be confident, secure, to be careless. RSV sometimes renders it "rely on".--the basic idea being firmness or solidity.
He goes on to say this type of hope is confident expectation, not a constant anxiety.
So trust in God, literally, is the opposite of shame.
So, no, you shouldn't.
You should trust God.
