Face palm

BIBLE READING: 2 Tim 3: 6 - 9 6 They are the kind who work their way into people’s homes and win the confidence of vulnerable women who are burdened with the guilt of sin and controlled by various desires. 7 (Such women are forever following new teachings, but they are never able to understand the truth.)  8 These teachers oppose the truth just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses. They have depraved minds and a counterfeit faith. 9 But they won’t get away with this for long. Someday everyone will recognize what fools they are, just as with Jannes and Jambres.

What does this passage mean to you today? 

BLOG: So I got up this morning and discovered what many of you already know. I didn't blog yesterday. I sat there and wondered why? I remember opening my blog interface. I remember copying the scripture for the day, and I remember - wait. Someone walked into my office and said, "Pastor!" (Insert facepalm here) 

James 5:16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

If there is anything, we do not like to do as a culture is, "I'm sorry!" Apologizing is seen as a form of weakness and incompetence. 

But I find that I have to say I'm sorry a lot. I say it to my church, wife, friends, daughter, and even strangers. I find that apologizing is needed to build trust and confidence in others. Admitting you made a mistake is human, and when people know that you forgive their mistakes too - it creates teamwork and lifelong relationships. 

Our world would be so much better if we were to say, "I'm sorry!" 

I'm sorry. 

PRAY: Dear Jesus, help me to own up to my mistakes. AMEN
