Is still too often
in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love; 2Corinthians 6:6
On February 27, I finished my post with, “I hardly ever hurt anyone anymore.” Immediately after reading it, I thought, “That’s not really true.” The fact is, I still hurt people, and the other fact is, I do it too often and, more often than not, it hurts me more than it does them. I guess that’s what they’re talking about when they say we’ve been convicted by the Holy Spirit.
God’s word also says we should confess our sins one to another, and, many times, it seems that’s what I’m attempting to do with these daily encouragements. I’m not perfect, but I’m better than I used to be, and I like to think I’m getting better all the time.
I share my thoughts with you—confess in a way—daily, and mostly what I hope is that by pointing out my shortcomings, I will encourage others to not make the mistakes I’ve made. But more than that, I hope I encourage folks to simply turn to God—even if only for the few minutes it takes to read my simple words—and realize how much He loves you.
As for hardly ever hurting anyone, let’s just say, I don’t intend to, and if I do, I am truly sorry.
