We all make mistakes in our lives. We can learn from our mistakes or we can continue down a path that leads to continued shortcomings. Keeping in mind that we all sin and fall short, we can choose to address ourselves and those around us in ways that are restorative or ways that continue to hold us down. If we take advice from the Bible, we should show love and be restorative!
The way we approach a situation can impact the outcomes. In our minds and thoughts to ourselves or in our actions and responses to others, we can continue negative "talk" that furthers an already negative situation or we can turn it around and find ways to make positive outcomes. When we base our responses on God's love, we can move forward restoring ourselves and others through God's grace. We can avoid harming ourselves and each other and instead fulfill God's intention of being fully restored through His grace and mercy!
Base your actions in God's love so that you and those around you can be restored through Him!
Thank You for Your never-ending love. Help me to act out of love and to both live restored and help others live restored through You and the sacrifice of Your Son. Through Him I pray, amen.
