Davidisms - Say "I'm Sorry" When You Make a Mistake

Jesus walked the earth as God in human flesh. The only perfect person to ever live. He never made a mistake. Not one. If you’re a parent (or if you’re not), you’ve made mistakes. It’s impossible not to. But here’s an important lesson I’ve learned: When you do make a mistake, say, “I’m sorry.” And mean it. There were times when I made mistakes with my children. But when I did, I’d admit it. I’d quickly go to them and say, “I’m sorry.” And hug them. Tell them I loved them. Ask for forgiveness. I did so to show them that I’m not perfect - I’m human! I too fall short of the glory of God. Just as they do (Rom. 3:23). When we model humility for our kids, it sets a sound spiritual foundation for their future relationships. With their own spouses and kids. We teach them that a person can be both strong and humble at the same time. Like Jesus. It’s why we should say, “I’m sorry,” to our children when we make a mistake. Believe me, they are watching everything we do and say.
