Last week there was a little spelling mistake in my blog…. some of you might have noticed it! It certainly added a different meaning to my words!
I find it’s easy to make a mistake. I mean, being human, it comes with the territory. Everyone makes a mistake! Some of us make more than one...
The biggest mistake to make when you make a mistake, (yes that does make sense) is to try and cover it up. I don’t know if you have ever done that, but I learnt that lesson a while ago when I was a kid. Don’t cover it up, just admit it, seek forgiveness if need be, and keep on moving.
What is it about us that wants to hide the fact that our humanity is real and that we don’t have it all together all the time? Maybe we might fool a few people and even sometimes ourselves, but we don’t fool God. In fact that’s why we have Jesus. Because God knows how we operate and knows what we need. Honesty with ourselves and God is always the best way. Not only because it is the right thing to do but because it allows us to see reality and move into a different place. When we are honest, God has the freedom to move in us.
