Embrace Your Wrong: Ask to Be Forgiven
by Natacha Cann on October 18th, 2016

​I was in the doctor’s office recently and two co-workers were having a discussion about making mistakes. One woman stressed that it is so important to “embrace the wrong you’ve done.” This may sound like something negative, as if to say, “Be proud of the wrong you’ve done.” But, this is not what the woman meant. She went on to explain that embracing your wrong means admitting your mistakes so that you can learn from them, grow and mature.
She was so right. And, embracing your wrong is more than just admitting your mistakes, or simply saying, “I messed up.” It’s also about taking action. When you mess up and admit it, what do you do about it? What you should do is apologize and ask to be forgiven. Thereafter, try to change your behavior so you don’t make the same mistakes again. This is total embracement – admitting what you did wrong, asking for forgiveness and then changing your behavior.
Luke 6:31 says, “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” This is affectionately known as the Golden Rule. The next time you wrong someone, try to apply the Golden Rule to your situation. You can do so by totally embracing your wrong.
