“I’m sorry” are two words that are very hard for most people to say. What is the solution? Conduct yourself in a manner so that you never NEED to say them, which is easier said than done, however I have a couple of scriptures for you to read and think about.
Proverbs 15:1 A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word, stirs up anger.It is never easy to just stand there and take it when someone is being harsh with you, is it?
We need to remember that Vs. 3, The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good.So when you think that God doesn’t see the things you go through, you are wrong! He sees and He knows!
Vs. 4, A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit.The things we think of and let come out of our mouth makes up who we are.
Philippians 4:8 Finally brethren whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue, and if there is anything praiseworthy-meditate on these things.
Forgiveness has to do with saying, I’m sorry but it is never appropriate without finishing it off with, Please forgive me. That puts the ball back in the other court. I’m sorry by it’s self is just about worthless as far as getting anything accomplished.
Not that we’re keeping score, right? 🙂
