Repentence

I have done many things I have regretted doing. I have misrepresented God financially, in relationships, being prideful, being disrespectful, being bitter toward people, in my attitude(s) etc. I have at times been slow to repent.  

If you have done something that has misrepresented Who God Is, you have hurt yourself, others and in so doing God.  If you do not want to repent for hurting yourself and others  you will continue to hurt yourself and others until you want to change course. God wants to help you repent (help you want to change course) so that you no longer continue to hurt yourself and others.
