Don’t we hate it when someone makes a mistake?
Guess what, others feel the same way when it happens in reverse.
Take traffic for example. We say things and do hand gestures in our car when someone cuts us off, pulls in front of us or stops suddenly, etc.
And yet we act like we never commit the same offense.
Get a grip and extend forgiveness. And, I’m sorry I didn’t show up at Church yesterday to fulfill my Lector responsibilities. I forgot and and took the day off by mistake.
