Does An Apology Work?


The Bible says, “It’s harder to make amends with an offended friend than to capture a fortified city. Arguments separate friends like a gate locked with iron bars” (Proverbs 18:19 NLT). According to this Proverb, if you have offended each other, will healing easily come to your marriage if you express words of love or respect? Why?

Though a wife wounded her husband with disrespect (most often unintentionally) and though a husband wounded his wife with lack of love (most often unintentionally), why can a sincere apology speed up healing?
