As a parent or guardian of young people, you must learn to own up for your mistakes so your wards can learn from you that owning up for wrongs done is not a sign of weakness, but of tremendous courage, strength, humility and truthfulness!
Accepting our fault does not come easy from time immemorial! Adam had to blame Eve for eating the forbidden fruit in Genesis 3 instead of owning up for his own short coming.
We see this play out in all sort of relationship! Pride has blinded many to the point of not seeing the log in our own eyes and seeing those of others with magnifying glasses! Examine yourself!
Naturally, we have inflated ego, and accepting we have done something wrong is like been stripped and whipped! We will dance around this and point fingers and all sort of acrobatics!
Just own up!
This inability to simply say “I am sorry”, have broken many homes, severe families, and caused unnecessary heart aches! It’s a sore thumb we most often are willing to play ping pong with, ofcourse with a touch of super strength Tylenol every now and then!
To be continued!
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
