May I ask you a rather personal question? Is there anyone you need to apologize to? Sometimes we can allow bitternesses and little hurts to accumulate in our hearts, when a simply apology will cleanse a relationship and give us a healthy dose of humility.
In an excellent article in Psychology Today entitled “The Power of Apology,” Beverly Engel points out that “Apology changed my life. I believe it can change yours, as well. Almost like magic, apology has the power to repair harm, mend relationships, soothe wounds and heal broken hearts.”
Much is made in the Bible of apologizing. It is intimately connected to forgiveness. And that’s something all of us need!
