Making reflections of past errors is not a bad thing, but let your reflections be for your learning, and not to build a sense of guilt. Guilt is the immobilization that comes from living in the past. You cannot feel guilty about things that you are going to do in the future, guilt is about things in the past, about things you have done. Guilt has been a major tool that the devil uses against man, he would either use people to remind you of your past or paint a picture of your past errors in your mind. And the moment you begin to meditate on these past errors, he has succeeded in immobilizing you.
I have heard people say things like "he does not even feel guilty for his mistake". In my opinion, you do not need to feel guilty for anything, especially things that can be corrected. Feeling guilty means mentally travelling back to your past and living there. People who live in the past kill the present, and never see the future. It is okay to take the blame for your errors or mistakes, especially the ones that affect others. But do not take the blame for guilt sake, but for responsibility sake. Maturity begins when we know how to take responsibility for our actions. People would always say and do things that will make you feel guilty, especially when they want something from you, but do not fall for their traps.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; EVERYTHING THAT TRANSPIRED IN THE PAST IS OVER. AND IF THEY ARE REALLY OVER, FEELING GUILTY CANNOT CHANGE WHAT IS OVER. THEREFORE, KILL THE GUILT, AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY. Have a most fruitful day, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don't forget to "like" it. And if you really like it, please share it!
