To be Sinful is to be Sorry too

I’m sorry. Two of the most powerful words yet is also a part of the most difficult words to say. Especially for those people who could not accept their wrongs. They say that what hinders a person from speaking this sentence is their pride. They are afraid to get down on their knees to apologize to somebody whom they have hurt. Others would say that no harm was done because there is no physical injury to the victim. Little did they know that words are more powerful (and hurtful) once spoken. That is why it is important to think before you speak because even the most careful person can sometimes attack people unintentionally. 

Matthew 5:23-24 So, what if you are offering your gift at the altar and remember that someone has something against you? Leave your gift there and go make peace with that person. Then come and offer your gift.

No matter how big or small your wrongdoings, don’t forget to say that you are sorry. For if you apologize, then you shall be forgiven. But that does not mean that you shall repeat your sins, because it is not what God wants us to do. He said that we should apoligize and we should learn from our mistakes. Not do them over and over, and be sorry over the same mistake. 

And if somebody asks for your forgiveness, we should also forgive them just like how God forgives us everytime. 

Matthew 6:14-15 For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. 

And since all of us commit sins one way or another, then we must forgive others who have hurt us. No matter how bad it has affected our life. Because this is also part of God’s plan-for us to learn. 😊

  1. I have never liked the word sorry. I think people say it because they got caught. If they didn’t then they never would say caught. I prefer the word forgiven. When I do something wrong I ask for forgiveness.
