An 3/24/23 ECP Blurb originated by Charles L. Robinson Jr. of Edifying Christian Publications:
If there is a circumstance whereby someone knows, thinks, or even suspects that he or she has done or is doing something that hinders their relationship with someone else, then that person should talk to the person to initiate reconciliation in their relationship. The biblical process starts with transparent talk for the attempt of genuine reconciliation. Even if reconciliation is not accomplished, both the want and attempt to reconcile should exist. The genuine talk proves the innate want and attempt. The genuine innate want and attempt itself (to reconcile) is just as important to God as the actual reconciliation itself. Why? Because without inner genuine want and attempt for reconciliation, there is lack of betterment towards the person and God in the relationship. Genuine innate want to reconcile is the disposition that God wants for people. The genuine innate disposition is so important to God that he (God) instructs that people are to prove their genuine innate disposition even before bringing a gift to him (God.) God wants the reconciliation, so people should want the reconciliation. Are you talking about it?
I encourage you to always attempt reconciliation, it is greater than the alternative. In Christ, God bless you and your families.
"Therefore, if thou bring the gift to the alter, and rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the alter, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift" Matthew 5:23-24
