Everyone Makes Mistakes

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

by Rev. Joda Collins  

The Bible is clear, “There are none perfect, no not one.” We all fall short of perfection. The best efforts of the best person will fail to be free of mistakes. What do we do when we make a mistake?

1. Own it. Admit to it. Do not ignore it or justify it.
2. If possible, sincerely ask forgiveness from those we wronged and attempt to make it right. In your request for forgiveness do not use (state) any sentence that has an “if” that fits in it. The responses to a request for forgiveness can be many. Do not compound your error by allowing a harsh reaction if you are not forgiven. The offended person may need time to process your request. When you ask for forgiveness, be honest. Are you sorry for what you did? Say so. Are you ashamed of yourself for what you did? Say so. If your request for forgiveness has to implicate someone else in their wrong doing, it might not be wise to seek forgiveness; there are so many variables that specifics in a short article are impossible to deal address here.
3. Learn from it and do everything within your power and God’s power in you to never do anything like that again.
4. Try not to beat yourself up too much over it. Everyone makes mistakes.

The process is not complicated. It is difficult.

Rev. Joda Collins

I make no claim that anyone else agrees with me.
