The law of the Lord is that if you do wrong, retribution must step in to make the wrong into a right. When retribution steps in, it is because the Lord God Almighty was unable to get you to the point of repentance.
If you are seeking first the best interests of the kingdom of God, instead of your personal interest, you will be quick to repent of any and every wrong doing. The kingdom of God is like a family whose reputation must be protected. It is your God family.
The Lord God Almighty El Shaddai
