The first to apologize is the bravest. The first to forgive is the strongest. And the first to forget is the happiest…
If you ever want to be the bigger man, sometimes you just have to apologize first, sometimes you have to be the bigger person and forgive first, and when you allow this peaceful resolve to be your lifestyle, you will find that even when others are in extreme times of chaos, and anger, you are still at peace.
Being peaceful requires from us an amount of grace that we can only let God model and show us. Peace and happiness don’t come with us just being right in every moment, instead happiness is sometimes shown by not showing everyone that you are right about a situation, that you know you are a hundred percent right about.
Be the bigger person today! Be honest, show integrity, and show people that it isn’t always about getting the last word, or being the one who is right, sometimes it is about showing people the love of God inside of you.
