Are you tired of people saying I’m sorry and not really meaning it?

They do something wrong and immediately say” I’m sorry”. Like saying I’m sorry quickly will somehow undo the wrong that was just committed?

Saying I’m sorry does not really mean that you are sorry. Understand being sorry means so much more. It means that you will repent, you will accept responsibility for the actions you did wrong and ultimately you will pay the penalty for the wrong action. Just saying I’m sorry doesn’t make the wrong all better. Your sorrow, yes that is what being sorry means has to be proven by actions, by a changed way of life.

Next time you have the need to say I’m sorry, really mean what you say. Let the people you have wronged know that you truly are sorry. In the end let your words be truth.
