Being Sorry

When we do something wrong, we should feel sorry. We are not perfect. We try to do things right, but sometimes we fail.
One time a deaf friend asked me to pray for him. My friend was trying to stop smoking. I promised I would pray for him. Several months later I saw my friend again. He told me that he had stopped smoking. My friend thanked me for my prayers. But I had not prayed for my friend. I had forgotten about him. I felt so sorry that I had forgotten.
In our Bible Reading today, Peter said three times that he did not know Jesus. Later, Peter was very sorry. Verse 75 says, ?Then Peter remembered what Jesus had told him: ?Before the rooster crows, you will say three times that you don?t know me.? Then Peter went outside and cried bitterly.?
Being sorry is a good thing. It gives us the chance to ask God to forgive us for doing wrong. It also helps us remember to try to do right in the future.
Ask God to forgive you today.
