It does not mean you’re a coward to say sorry. Actually, you’re a very courageous person to take a step and do what’s good for you and the other party. You love to see that peace reigns! All ages without boundary take offense and offend too. I remember when I was a little boy, I was made to think that only little ones offend and have to say sorry. Little did I know that they wanted me to know that it’s very important to say “I’m sorry” once you offend someone, whether of your age, below or above. I could also say sorry even when I knew I was right.
All of us take offense and offend. People around us, even our closest friends cause us pain – emotionally or physically, we can’t fight them or hate them or ignore them or quarrel with them to make peace. Being quick to say, “I’M SORRY” even when it doesn’t feel right, could quench the fiery anger and restore peace.
“Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.”
