It will be alright in a few days. I'll do something nice for them, or get them a gift. They are just too sensitive. Do we use excuses or "substitutes" instead of asking FORGIVENESS? Is it because we really don't know how deeply we have hurt them (or GOD) by our actions? And/Or does it cause us "pain" to ask their forgiveness, because of our PRIDE (that we don't think we have), outright "REBELLIOUS SELFISHNESS" (where we REFUSE to humble ourselves) and GOD knows my "heart" (where we substitute OUR WILL for GOD'S WILL)? "A broken and a contrite heart, O GOD, YOU will not despise..." (Psalm 51:17). It takes a CONTRITE (ground to powder, where nothing is left but GOD'S WILL) HEART when asking FORGIVENESS for GOD to be GLORIFIED. GOD IS NOT DECEIVED, DON'T DECEIVE YOURSELF.
