You’re going to mess up, make mistakes, do something you regret, hurt someone and give less than your best every single day. The question, however, is whether your mistakes are going to cause you to get bitter or better. You’ll become bitter if you deny your mistakes, beat yourself up or try to blame others for what you have done. But you’ll let God make you better if you invite God to make God’s grace more real, learn something about yourself or become more compassionate. And just in case you’re wondering, better beats bitter every single time.
