July 15, 2012

May you take note of the difference between saying “I’m sorry” and “being sorry.”  It is much easier to say “I’m sorry.” After all, it can mean so many things: “I am sorry that I got caught,” or “I am sorry that you took offence,” or even, “I am sorry that this happened this way,” – but none of these take responsibility for our own actions. And more importantly, none will produce change.

For  godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of:

but the sorrow or the world worketh death.

II Corinthians 7:10

Maybe the thing that keeps us from true sorrow over our wrong actions is our own pride.

Let us humble ourselves, admit our failings, ask and receive forgiveness, (Don’t forget to exhibit that same grace to others. 🙂 )and forget the past while pressing on.

Thanks for reading!
