This is us us is this.
If I tell you you hurt me, the best response is to apologize.
Especially as a Christian.
I tripped and that’s why I hit you.
You stopped too close to me so that’s why I hit you.
They pushed me and that’s why I hit you.
If you were paying attention and hadn’t gotten in my way I wouldn’t have hit you.
I didn’t hit you that hard it couldn’t have hurt.
So now, as the hurt party, I’m injured all over again. Twice. And now we have a problem.
I may end up bitter and with unforgiveness because all I needed was an apology.
Instead of just owning the fact that you hurt me, you refuse to be accountable. And you are mad that I blamed you.
And now we are both walking around offended.
What if we treated people the way we want to be treated?
What if we treated people the way Jesus treated us?
What if we treated people as if God is truly watching and taking score? Like He ACTUALLY is.
At times, our intentions don’t matter. Their impact does.
Be better. Do better. There are consequences now and eternally.
I promise this is for me. Hahahaha.
Every single second matters. And we only have so many. We have to be far more aware of that.
Go be great. Someone is counting on it.
