When we make mistakes what is our initial reaction?
Do we try and justify our actions?
Do we blame somebody else?
Do we hide in shame?
Do we do nothing and hope that no-one notices?
How about this as a novelty?
Just start by saying, "Sorry!" And then offer to make things right.
I think that this simple act is one of the hardest things for humans to do!
Why? I am not sure - ask yourself that question?
Why do you find it hard to say sorry?
Just out of interest, the ability to say 'Sorry' has something to do with our ability to ask God for forgiveness. If we can't admit our mistakes before God, then we will not be able to admit our need for a Saviour.
2 Corinthians 7:9 - "...yet now I am happy, not because you were made sorry, but because your sorrow led you to repentance. For you became sorrowful as God intended and so were not harmed in any way by us."
Living in Grace,
P.S. If you are one of the few people in the world who has no problem with this, please pass on your secret!
