JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2019 GRANGE NEWS
No one likes to be wrong. Nobody is eager to admit they made a mistake or chose poorly. But we know we are not perfect. People make mistakes all the time.
Instead of hoping no one saw your mistake why not own up to your actions and accept responsibility? You will be amazed at how much better you feel. The consequences of holding onto our sin are far more damaging than telling the truth and asking for forgiveness.
Have you ever lost your patience with someone and responded with a sharp tongue? Have you ever promised something that you were unable to deliver? Instead of justifying your actions, how about apologizing and asking for forgiveness?
If you have children, don’t forget to ask them for forgiveness. By modeling the behavior of repentance, you are letting your children know that it is all right to make mistakes and that they will always be loved and forgiven.
Whoever conceals their sin does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy. ~Proverbs 28:13~
