I'm Sorry

by PamFord Davis  
1/01/2010 / Devotionals

There are two very simple words which we find extremely difficult to express: wrong and sorry. Each is made up of only five letters; but their weight of accountability spans the globe. It takes no effort to point fingers or pass the blame. We would rather swallow bitter foods then be forced to swallow our pride.

The sitcom "Happy Days" character "Fonz" could not force the word wrong from his lips. His foolish pride kept him from admitting his weakness and failures. We found it amusing; but in all honesty it should prick our conscience. We fear confessing we are wrong will cause others to think less of us; and we want to be accepted at any cost.

The Apostle Peter had to face the facts. How could he have been so wrong? He honestly believed he would never deny and desert his Lord and Savior. Did he feel sorry for the three part denial? Yes, he saw himself when he looked into the loving eyes of Jesus. He saw his failure and his sin and it broke his heart, along with his pride. "And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. Then Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how He had said to him, Before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times. So Peter went out and wept bitterly (Luke 22:61-62 NKJ)." Being wrong, and sharing with God and others we are truly sorry is not a sign of failure. It brings victory.
