Today Reminder - 16 October 2012 (Mistakes)

A reminder for today
The man replied, "It was the woman you gave me who gave me the fruit, and I ate it." (Genesis 3:12)

Mistakes – I guess it is a natural response in human nature to seek a reason for making a mistake. We would rather get angry and blame someone or something for our mistakes than seek out our own faults. Is it pride? Is it that we strive for perfection in an imperfect world? Or do we just like to make ourselves feel better at someone else's expense?

Adam and Eve were punished for their disobedience in the Garden of Eden that left them banished from the garden to live of the land with hard work. Their mistake cost them dearly. Making mistakes is part of life and in them we learn and we grow. Allowing yourself to make a mistake and excepting the punishment that follows is part of forgiveness. 

Forgiveness plays such a vital role in our daily lives. Not only does it free you from the guilt, but it sets you free from the grip of the enemy. You see the enemy does not want you to succeed. He wants you to fail until you get to a point where you give up and slip into darkness. God on the other hand wants you to be free and to succeed, otherwise He would not have send His son to save you.

My dear friend, make mistakes and accept the result. Forgive, because God forgave you.

My prayer for you is that you will accept your mistakes and forgive yourself for them and those that make mistakes around you, in Jesus name.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
