I say things to myself that I would never say to anyone else. Critical. Demeaning. Unkind words. You know what? It isn’t ok. If it isn’t true or kind, we shouldn’t say it…to ourselves or anyone else.
“There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” Romans 8:1
There’s a difference between conviction and condemnation. One leads you to Jesus and the other leads you to shame. If you are constantly putting yourself down for something in your past or living in a condemning state of mind, there is a better way. God isn’t honored by condemnation. He doesn’t offer it to us. And He isn’t pleased when we participate. Accept His grace. And offer it to others and to yourself. – Sandi
