I typically think I’m not so bad. I can usually come up with someone worse.
Thinking through situations where someone hasn’t dealt with something well, I may think I could have done better. Or when I have done it badly, I’m pretty good at forgiving myself, brushing it off, and moving along.
- Am I as generous with administering grace to others as I am with myself? (Do the driving litmus test)
- What does this sort of attitude and behavior model to others, including my kids?
- We are all created by God.
- We are all created in his image.
- Jesus tells us to forgive as we have been forgiven.
clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
