It isn't the wrong things I have done as a Christian for some things just happen.
I must give a tip of the hat to everyone who has never been guilty of doing this and say congrats for their uprightness.
This wrong stuff comes in so many forms from verbally causing pain to the extreme, whereby you physically harm someone.
I have said things I shouldn't have said sixty years ago that I still remember and I wish I could take back but to no avail. Being or saying I'm sorry isn't a remedy for harm done by speaking harshly but it's all we have.
Job 27:4 My lips will not speak wickedness, and my tongue will utter no deceit.
Romans 12:17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody.
These and hundreds more scriptures admonish us to walk uprightly before all men, for Christians this is an imperative but is easily forgotten in the heat of battle.
The crux of this is set forth in clear terms in; Luke 12:48 But someone who does not know, and then does something wrong, will be punished only lightly. When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required.
Let’s face it we are debtors to righteous living for we have been given it all.
These thoughts are for the purpose of "Personal character adjustment” which I need from time to time!"
