Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. – Matthew 5:16
It’s so important as a believer that when you make a mistake, you apologize. What you’re saying is I didn’t do this in God’s name. This isn’t Christian of me. I’m sorry. I’m a human being. I mess up sometimes. And you know what? That’s okay. In some ways, apologizing for your mess ups is one of the most human, loving, and kind things you can do. It’s the mature thing to do. The more you do that, the more people actually respect you, and respect the name of God. Whether we like it or not, we carry God’s name. You carry God’s name. You have His authority. You have His life. You have His salvation, but you also have a responsibility to do good and to be good.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, thank you for your love. Please help me to be humble and help me to have the strength to apologize when I mess up. Amen.
