Making Things Right – Proverbs 6:2-4

By Michael Henry Jr.

The passage for today is Proverbs 6:2-4. It says, “If you have been ensnared by the words of your mouth or caught by the words of your mouth, then do this, my son, and save yourself. Since you have come into the hand of your neighbor, go humble yourself and be urgent with your neighbor to free yourself. You have no sleep to your eyes nor slumber to your eyelids.”

This passage is telling us that if we have said something that we regret, we should humble ourselves and apologize to the person we offended. We should do this quickly, before the situation gets worse.

This is important because it shows that we are taking responsibility for our actions and that we are willing to make things right. It also helps to restore the relationship that was damaged by our words.

When we humble ourselves and apologize, we are showing that we are more concerned about the other person’s feelings than we are about our own pride. This is a Christ-like attitude, and it is one that we should all strive to have.

If you have said something that you regret, don’t wait to apologize. Humble yourself and make things right. It will be worth it in the end.
