“I’m sorry, BUT…” is not a true apology. Genuine confession has no “buts.” It offers no excuses or rationalizations, and assigns no blames. In a true apology—either to God or to man—I accept my mistakes as MY own failures. Period. I do not blame others or circumstances for my actions and inactions. In an honest confession I admit that my greatest problem is myself, and my greatest need is forgiveness and a Savior from myself—my sinful human self. Genuine apology is a mark of humility—and strength. For when I truly confess my failures, it frees me from the guilt and crippling pain of living a hypocritical and phony life. But if, in my apologies, I play the blame-game, I will B-LAME! (Psalm 51 & 32)—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
