"True repentance consist in the heart being broken for sin, and broken from sin." THORNTON
Whenever I have hurt someone through the years, I come to see the value in not only saying that I am sorry, but for offending, but rather expect the following to take place in my life...
1. Have I offended because they are just to sensitive? If that is the case, then I must offer not only my apology, but consider their capacity in the future.
2. If I have truly offended, then what is the Lord speaking to me about my character and behavior? Is their more than "I'm sorry" involved?
3. What is the Lord dealing with me about that needs to change in my approach to people?
"He that is is truly sorry for having sinned is almost innocent."
