Email: When good people hurt others [SD]

Scripture says to put no trust in kings or man. Every person is flawed; every person is imperfect; all sin and fall short of the glory of God; every one of us is going to mess up (some just more often or bigger than others).

This is not to ignore all the apparent and actual good in each of us; just to say not to forget we are all fallible and will disappoint each other, even when dressed in our Sunday best.

It hurts most when these disappointments come from those we love and who love us; but that disappointment is within us, and must be owned by us. It should be less "Why did you do this to me?" and more "How can I be flexible enough to forgive and grow through this complex human incident?"
