Is saying “I’m sorry” enough to apologize?
However, our ideas about apologizing might not be sufficient. Even adults can act like children whose mother just told them to “shake hands and say you’re sorry.” Many times simply saying “I’m sorry” is not a full apology because it does not take into account the level of wrong done.
Do you say sorry when you accidentally bump into someone?
There are times when we accidentally bump into someone or say something we shouldn’t. Those little errors, done without evil intent, are easy to apologize for with an “I’m sorry.” But when we have truly wronged someone, that person needs us to validate the pain we caused.
What should I do if my brother sins against me?
Pay attention to yourselves! If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him, and if he sins against you seven times in the day, and turns to you seven times, saying, ‘I repent,’ you must forgive him.” If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
