Fixing a Morally-Bad Decision series
Those You Hurt, Ask Forgiveness!
Being the better person in Christ, you must ask to be forgiven by those you have hurt, intentionally or unintentionally because it was a morally-bad decision. Asking someone to "forgive" you is admitting that you did something wrong, making a statement of repentance and swallowing your pride to be responsible to address it. Saying "I'm sorry" only emphasizes that you are embarrassed for doing something that hurt them, but there is no confession of your morally-bad decision. Are you coming to the altar with your sacrifice and remembering that you left someone sitting in hurt. The Word of God says to reconcile first, then worship in spirit and in truth. You can't make someone forgive you but you can be sincere in asking.
Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
Magnificent Father, we come in a spirit of oneness offering thanks for the gift of worship that we leave at the altar. We praise You for the grace and kindness that You have shown us, so that our worship is for real. We declare and decree blessings upon us who ask those we have hurt for forgiveness and we come to the altar with our sacrifice of praise, so that our worship is for real. This we pray, with an anointing in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, Amen.
