Everyone makes mistakes, EVERYONE!
Follower’s of Jesus should admit those mistakes, take responsibility and humbly ask for forgiveness. This is called repentance. God is gracious to all who are willing to repent.
Be quick to ask others for forgiveness. Also, ask the Lord for forgiveness. “Blessed are the peacemakers for they will be called sons of God.” Matthew 5:9
LUKE 5:32, NIV
32 I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
1 JOHN 4:20, NIV

MATTHEW 5:23-24, NIV
23 “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you,
24 leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift.
