Apology and Forgiveness
Randy Emon

How many family, neighbor or business disputes will a law enforcement officer handle in their career that
could have been quickly resolved by one party saying "I'm sorry!"  Take a look at how the Bible views this:

  • Make allowance for each other's faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Colossians 3:13(NLT)
  • Stop being mean, bad-tempered, and angry. Quarreling, harsh words, and dislike of others should have no place in your lives.  Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God has forgiven you because you belong to Christ. Ephesians 4:31-32(TLB)
  • Your heavenly Father will forgive you if you forgive those who sin against you; but if you refuse to forgive them, he will not forgive you. Matthew 6:14(TLB)
  • And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses. Mark 11:25-26(NKJV)
  • Don't rejoice when your enemies fall; don't be happy when they stumble. Proverbs 24:17(NLT)

  • Sensible people control their temper; they earn respect by overlooking wrongs. Proverbs 19:11(NLT)

Forgiveness is a funny thing. It warms the heart and cools the sting. --William A. Ward
