As believers, we need to be living examples of Christ. That’s a tall order, us being human and all. We’re going to make mistakes everyday. But it’s so cool that God actually knows that, and He made a way to compensate for our failings. He gave us His Holy Spirit.
You don’t have to be perfect, but you have to listen to Him. If your heart is hungry to know God, He makes you sensitive to hear Him. and when you hear Him, He helps you when you need it.
I really try to act appropriately in life, and that includes my online life. I used a photo recently from a free photo use site, but this particular photo asked for the photographer to be credited. It wasn’t until I was in the shower the next day that it dawned on me that I forgot to do that. I tend to hear God a lot in the shower. I scurried to find that image again and get the photographer’s name. I was amazed at how many other Christians sites were using the same image, but failed to credit the photographer as asked.
I was grateful that the Holy Spirit prompted me to fix an error. He didn’t condemn me. He just showed me what to do. He’s wonderful like that. Ask Him for guidance. He’s there for you.
