The Power of Apologizing

There is nothing that feels so healing, soothing and comforting as a well-spoken apology. Half-apologies, on the other hand, deepen the wound. When apologizing, consider the admonition that “godly sorrow leads to repentance” (2 Corinthians 7:10). If truly sorry, we will admit wrong, taking full responsibility for our actions without excuse, admit sorrow, a statement of understanding of the impact of our actions and a plan for restoration. Are you sorry for how you have hurt someone and are you ready to make amends?
