Most of us are haunted by our past! From time to time, flashes of our most embarrassing moments or the darkest hour of our lives will appear in our minds. We regret for the stupid things we said, and the horrible things that we harmed others.
The brothers of Joseph did something terrible to Joseph. Their horrible past came to haunt them. If you have done something hurtful to others and it has kept on disturbing you, the best thing is to make amends for your wrongdoings and pray that you will have a clean conscience.
Let’s ponder the story about the brothers of Joseph.
21Speaking among themselves, they said, “Clearly we are being punished because of what we did to Joseph long ago. We saw his anguish when he pleaded for his life, but we wouldn’t listen. That’s why we’re in this trouble.” (Genesis 42:21 NLT)
Let’s pose a question to God. “Dear God, could You help me to make amends for my past mistakes?”
Let’s practice what you learnt. Pray that you will have the determination to make amends for your past mistakes.
Let’s proclaim to others about your experiential knowledge. Share your story of making amends with someone with a non-believer.
