Pack Your Bag, You’re Going on a Guilt Trip

| Guilt

Guilt often has a way of restraining and redirecting us. Guilt can become a burden too heavy to carry. It can suck the joy out of life.

Unresolved and unnecessary guilt can trap us in a prison of despair.

I’ve seen people hurt themselves and others by failing to deal constructively with guilt in a grace-based, future-oriented way.

Destructive Guilt: Guilt is a message of disapproval sent to our minds that says, “You should be ashamed of yourself!”

Failure and disobedience are part of life. We all struggle with guilt and need forgiveness. A constructive response to guilt is a choice to resolve it in a grace-based, future-oriented, and other-centered way.

It’s a decision to refuse to hold against yourself the sin God does not hold against you!
