Making Things Right

How to make things right?

What does making things right really mean? It seems to be up for interpretation. What it means to you may be different from what it means to me. Growing up in a church I’ve heard it said that you must make things right when you have done something wrong to someone. That is a great relational principle. When you do something wrong to someone you should take responsibility for your own actions.

What happens when you are wronged. If we are honest, we want someone to right a wrong when the wrong has been done to us. Let’s be very careful not to blur the lines and cross over to bullying or to an abusive nature. Forgiveness, reconciliation, or making things right should not be forced.

How do you make things right? 

Think about it! 

In the book, Parenting is Heart Work, authors Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, share with parents the importance of getting to the heart of an issue. I see their concept as a tool for helping you make things right. Ask these questions to yourself: What have I done wrong in this situation? and What could I do better next time?

What do you think? Could these questions be helpful to think through for making things right?
