How do you respond to those who still see you as you once were? Although you have long moved on by submitting your heart to the Lord and although you have held yourself accountable to others as you have actively worked to conform yourself to Christ's image, some still see you from the filters of the past. Many times, this is a result of their own woundedness and inability to move forward. Perhaps, they have not yet forgiven you although you long ago made amends to the best of your ability. Guarding your heart from defensiveness and self-justification is crucial if you are to walk in lasting healing. Remaining loving, setting boundaries (not walls), remaining teachable and extending graciousness and kindness in such situations are all signs of a truly changed heart.
