Saying "I'm Sorry" 

If you have lived for a number of years, you know that apologies are the only way to maintain true relationships. For as long as we are on earth, our sinful flesh will continue to get in our way of dealing with others. We will say things to offend. We will gossip to hurt. We might even get into physical threats with someone.
How often do we get angry with another person before we gather all the facts? How often do we forget to take people’s words and actions in the kindest possible way? How often do we forget to return something we borrowed? How often do we forget to finish a task that we promised to do?
If you are like me, way more often than you would like to admit. Yes, we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. God demands perfection. We fail. Thanks be to God that we are justified freely by God’s grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. Because he forgives us, we are now able to forgive others.
So in order to build long term relationships, we need to apologize and teach our children to say I am sorry. By doing so, you will be teaching them to take responsibility for their actions. It is better to own up and say, “I’m sorry that I lost control of my temper yesterday,” than to make excuses. When you acknowledge that you offended someone, you are letting the other person know that you intend to try harder to avoid the sin.  
The final piece of a healthy relationship with your child and others is to be ready to say, “I forgive you.” What peace, comfort, and joy that brings us when our Savior tells us that he forgives us! Imagine, the peace and comfort you give your child that he is forgiven. You love them and restore them to a good relationship with you. Now imagine how that restores a relationship with another adult when you freely forgive them. “I’m sorry.” “You are forgiven.”
