Go Ahead – Make Mistakes


Humans are not perfect beings and we all make mistakes.  Making mistakes can be good.  It’s how we learn and gain experience.  Knowing how to deal with mistakes can improve your emotional well-being and outlook on life.

When you make a mistake:

  • Admit the mistake and accept responsibility
  • Learn from the mistakes
  • Make amends if necessary
  • Don’t dwell on the mistake, move forward


Positive Character Traits

In Matthew 12:22-50, Jesus has a lot to say about character.  For example,

  • A tree is known by its fruit
  • Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks

Webster defines character as the mental and ethical traits of a person.  Those traits could be positive or negative.

Positive character traits that I try to incorporate into my life include:

  • Humility
  • Kindness
  • Loyalty
  • Honesty
  • Integrity
  • Generosity
  • Gratitude
  • Patience
  • Compassion
  • Friendliness
  • Dedication

I don’t always live up to my goal, but I learn from my mistakes and try again.
