There is a song by Elton John, “Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word”. Must people find it hard to say sorry, even when they know in their heart that it’s the best thing to do? Saying sorry means, taking responsibility for doing/ failing to do something which is causing commotion in your relationships. Sometimes we say an insincere apology which is not heartfelt and the other person refuse to accept that apology, because they know you don’t mean it. If you have upset someone, its best for both parties that you put things right for their and your peace of mind, its best to put thing right as soon as practically possible, before thing deteriorate and go out of control.
Just like we don’t like saying sorry to others, we also don’t like admitting our faults to God. This is how St. Paul puts it, “Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.” Colossians 3:13-15. “ If we confess our sins, he (God) is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him (God) out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives.” I John 1:9-10
When we intentionally offend others or our heavenly father, we have an obligation to seek forgiveness by asking for it. Forgiveness is objective and has no middle ground. It’s absolute. That means, it is either offered or it is not. There is no such thing as partial forgiveness. Take every opportunity to seek forgiveness and make peace with the offended person.
