admin Audio, Podcast 5 Comments

Why are these powerful, life-giving words difficult to say?  Whether it is a child speaking this to a sibling, a boss to an employee, or a husband to a wife, there is often a battle to speak them because of self-justification, excuse making, or victim mindsets. In this message, Steve Backlund shares from his own experience about the powerful benefits of taking ownership for our behaviors. He also identifies four likely healthy attributes of those who are willing to say, “I was wrong. I am sorry.”

    Thank you for this. I have been reading the story of the unmerciful servent. I know God is on this even tho its hard to follow through on, especially when the person I need to say it to hasn’t said it to me when they’ve hurt me.
    I so appreciate you both and igniting hope.
    God bless, strengthen and encourage you.

    This is such an important message and you expressed it so well. Those who humble themselves will be exalted. I would have had a very fragmented family today if I hadn’t gone to my children, took responsibility for what I did or didn’t do or said and asked them to forgive me. Although it was difficult at times, it was the most powerful thing to do as it brought healing and reconciliation. It is an on-going process throughout our lives.

    I am encouraged, this is a day to day challenge in our lives. Yes, one cannot be a person of influence with a victim mindset. By saying, I am sorry, I was wrong, is more liberating.
