Saying Sorry

It's hard to say "sorry" sometimes, especially when you feel you weren't completely to blame for the situation. We often think, "well I'll say sorry when they say sorry." Well it doesn't work that way. That's kind of like when Jesus said in Luke 6:32-36 "If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them.  And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that.  And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full.  But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.  Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful." 

We LOVE even when others don't love, we GIVE even when others don't give, we SHARE even when others don't share, we APOLOGIZE even when others don't apologize. This is what children of the God do, and there is a reward!

I know that I have had to say "I'm sorry" many many times over the years to my children, to my wife, to my friends, to co-workers, to employees, to church members, and to strangers on the road. And it's never easy.

I know it's hard because I have not had very many people through the years ever say sorry to me. I sat down with Jana the other day and reflected on all the times we've been hurt or wronged and we could only count but a handful of times when people actually came to us to apologize for what they said, or what they did to hurt us. I say that not to get pity from anyone, but to emphasize that apparently saying, "I'm sorry" is difficult and rare. Pride gets in the way.


Be the kind of person who says, "I'm sorry" when you have wronged someone is someway, even when they don't know you have wronged them AND even if you feel they owe you an apology first ... you be first.
