Shame is not a subject that has historically been talked about much in Western culture, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a big part of how we function as a society. In recent years, books that explain shame—and help women shake it off—have topped the best seller lists.

On this episode of Let’s Talk, Jackie, Jasmine, and Melissa discuss how the Bible views shame. The concept is present in the Scripture from the time sin entered the world. Jasmine explains, “Adam and Eve, they felt shame about the wrong thing. They weren’t like, ‘We disobeyed God. That’s what the problem is.’ They were like, ‘Oh my gosh, we’re naked. We need to hide. We need some clothes.’ And God’s like, ‘Law broken, but you’re naked. Okay, that’s what you’re worried about right now?'”

Listen in as our hosts talk about how we should identify shame and when and how we should let go of it.
