The phrases "I'm Sorry", and "I Forgive You", are probably the five hardest words in the English language to say. We sometimes go through our entire lives keeping that forgiveness to ourselves, while the person who is sorry is so torn with guilt that they can't bring themselves to admit they were wrong and seek forgiveness. I have been on both sides and neither is pleasant, but I have found that the rift that is caused by not saying these five words is far worse than the actual act itself. Sometimes it is simply a misunderstanding, a word or phrase that is taken wrong, or an action done in the heat of the moment. I think it's important to first look at the person who did the action, was it intentional, was it ment to really harm? Most times we don't see the true meanings of words, or why an action was done. The bottom line is we need to take a breath and say those five words, "I'm Sorry", or "I Forgive You". In this time of Lent let us remember one who gave up his life and was still able to say, "I Forgive You".
