Can You Say Sorry?In my humble opinion, today’s devotion title is one we should pay attention to: “Say You Are Sorry.” I would argue that many people struggle with saying that they are sorry. They use all kinds of excuses and find it difficult to say that they are sorry. They are not willing to say they are sorry to God or to someone else who has issues with them. We tend to blame others for disagreements and hurts, without taking personal responsibility. To say you are sorry, you need to feel that it is partially your fault. We become stubborn and refuse to take any responsibility for something that has harmed another.  When our children do something out of place, we want them to say they are sorry. However, as adults, parents, and mature believers, we sometimes struggle with those words. II Corinthians 13:11 is our scriptural reference today:  

“Dear brothers and sisters, I close my letter with these last words: Be joyful. Grow to maturity. Encourage each other. Live in harmony and peace. Then the God of love and peace will be with you.”

Paul wants his fellow believers to grow into maturity, encourage one another and to live in harmony without harboring ill will against another. He wants them to live in love. Paul wants them to express words that offer forgiveness to one another. He wants them to greet each other with a sacred kiss. He wants them to honor God by the way they live. Paul prays to God that they will not do wrong by refusing to forgive each other. Chapter 13 is one that you should read and then examine your personal life to see if you have grown in the Lord to the extent that you can say with sincerity these three words, “I am sorry.”
