The Bible says that God gives grace to the humble (Proverbs 3:34). If we are to receive the grace given to the humble, it often means saying “I am sorry” first.Read the rest.
Don’t you find it relatively easy to apologize if the other humbly approaches you? Going first is the bit that is hard to swallow.
You would never claim perfection in marriage. You just believe your spouse was more wrong; he or she ought to crawling to you before there is resolution. Maybe you clattered your bowl into the kitchen sink and shut the door with a grumpy bang on your way to work this morning, because you thought your spouse should apologize first. What silly games we play.
