Why do I always have to be the one to apologize?!! This issue comes up quit often when I’m mentoring. I’ve even felt the same way in my own life. “why do I always have to be the one to say I’m sorry?”, “why can’t he ever just be the one to do what’s right?.” This battle in our mind causes us to wait way to long for their apology first. As a result, we can go a long time before getting any resolution in our relationship. Sound familiar? Of course it does. The main thing we have to remember when we find ourselves in an argument is that God rewards the peace maker. It’s important to remember that if you just keep doing things God’s way, He see’s our heart, and your reward will come from Him. Remember that next time and it will help you to avoid feelings of resentment.
Here’s my relationship Tip: Don’t wait!
If your able to be the peace maker in the situation and have the spiritual maturity to do so, then apologize! You may feel like the other person is wrong but I guarantee you that you played a role in that argument. Do you want to be right, or do you want your marriage full of peace, harmony and unity? The devil’s main tactic is to divide, don’t let him win. Remember there are millions of divorced people who were “right!” It’s not going to kill you to be the first to apologize. In fact, it’s going to reveal the depth of God’s love in your heart and I promise, it will turn your relationship around little by little. Choose to be the peace maker and watch God bless you!!
