Have you ever made a mistake and thought; “I wish I had one more chance to do it again?” It might be easier to ask who has not been in this position.
Face it, we all make mistakes. We say and do things we wish we had not said or done. Sadly, when it comes to life, there are no “Easy” buttons, or “do-overs.” We all have to consider what we are going to do once the mistake is made.
Having the opportunity to receive one more chance depends on how we deal with the mistake.
Acknowledge the mistake.
Take full responsibility.
Evaluate every possible solution.
Take appropriate action toward resolution.
Too often a prideful approach is taken and results in greater conflict, paranoia, and resistance. Arrogance demands we take our extreme views to even greater extremes creating a “lofty” separation.
However, when we approach our mistakes with humility and a decisiveness toward appropriate actions, there is opportunity for one more chance.
Is this not what God has done for us?
