Apologies

May 10, 2012

Mark messed up. He arrived an hour late at a restaurant where he was to meet a friend from church. The friend had already left. Feeling sorry about his mistake, Mark purchased a gift certificate from the restaurant and stopped at a local card shop to search for an apology card. Among hundreds of cards, he was surprised to find only a few “sorry for my actions” cards in an obscure part of the store. He purchased one and gave it to his friend who accepted his apology.

Although apology cards may not be popular, apologies are frequently needed in our relationships. Apologizing is a biblical action. Jesus instructed His followers to make things right with those we’ve offended (Matt. 5:23-24; 18:15-20). And the apostle Paul said, “If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all” (Rom. 12:18). Living at peace may require apologies.

Apologies can be hard to make because it takes a spirit of humility to admit our mistake, which may not come naturally for us. But taking responsibility for how we were wrong in a situation can bring healing and restoration to a relationship.

Have you messed up? Swallow your pride and make the first move—even if you can’t find a card to help you say it.

Whenever you offend a friend,
Apologize and make things right;
For if you will admit your wrong,
You may avoid a needless fight. —Sper
The best way to get the last word is to apologize.

Read: Matthew 5:21-26

If you . . . remember that your brother has something against you, . . . first be reconciled to your brother. —Matthew 5:23-24
Bible in a Year:
Nehemiah 10-13

Third marking period has begun, but the students think it's summer -- particularly the freshmen who have the most on the line right now. sigh.

Yes, Wednesday’s are the big day. We got the checks printed on time, but I had so many corrections I didn’t have time to make all of them. So far none will starve if they have to wait til their next check. Of the 3 I’ve identified so far, 2 were submitted wrong.

Did you pass your PT tests? Your back feeling any better?

I am off for home!

Oh my...one of the Moms was really evil to me about her kid (and she fired me)

Everybody else LOVED the recital, so she was in a minority of one. Which is a REALLY slim minority, right?

The ankle is much better, thank you.

Made it home, but had to sit in construction traffic. I think it is time to try an alternate route. I’ll miss seeing the daily change, but I hate sitting.

Kathy and Luv, my mind is reeling from the news I heard today and this evening. The pronouncement by the Narcissist-in-Chief, and a thread I was pinged to by Waglebee on Tiller the Killer.

If you think that things are that bad in America, you're dead right! I was shopping in Sam's Club last Saturday - in the checkout line I ran into an active duty Special Forces Colonel. We exchanged pleasantries and I opined, without going into a lot of editorial comment, that I didn't envy our troops serving under this particular C-in-C. He nodded his head yes and made another point I had not been aware of.

He informed me that our active duty military presently amounts to less than 1/2% of the population. That percentage has never been so low in our lifetimes. I'm sure this Colonel fears for the survival of our Nation, as I do.

We spoke about the Special Forces - I imparted to him that my Uncle Jack Dowd was a Paratrooper who was involved in Special Forces before it became known as Special Forces - boots on the ground in Nam and Laos in the late 50's. We thanked each other for our respective service and went our ways.

It heartens me to meet men like this - I only hope that we can continue to produce men and women like him now and in the future. Lord knows, we need them dearly!
