When you make a mistake...

Tracy Klehn, Growing Friendships

When you make a mistake you have the option of beating yourself up or throwing your hands up, laughing at yourself, and reminding yourself that this is an opportunity to grow in humility and to remember that God "gives grace to the humble" (Proverbs 3:34)

The other great thing about not taking yourself so seriously and growing in humility is that you are more likely to be able to extend grace to others, shrug off their mistakes, and not be so easily offended.
