No matter how well-intentioned you are, at some point, you will offend someone. If, by chance, you
have hurt a person—even by accident—saying you’re sorry is important.

In a recent Instagram post, GRAMMY® Award-winning gospel singer Tasha Cobbs challenged
followers to be willing to acknowledge the pain they may have unwittingly inflicted upon someone
else.
Even if you don’t think you did wrong, Cobbs, 35, said, “Maybe how they see it is how it really
happened. Everyone tells the story through the lens of their experiences.”

Her words of wisdom were shared on the “Break Every Chain” singer’s social media page in graphic
form under the hashtag #ThoughtsFromTashasCouch.

Cobbs’ unique angle on the issue is reminiscent of a scripture found in James 3:2 NIV that says,
“We all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep
their whole body in check.”

Because no one is perfect, no matter how hard they try, offending others is inevitable.

“Maybe, from what their life’s experiences have taught them, you were wrong; you did hurt them; it
was malicious,” Cobbs continued, attempting to help others see the issue from the offended
individual’s side.

She added, “Choosing to continue to argue your perspective will be non-productive. Maybe it’s time
for you to settle it and apologize. Apologizing isn’t admitting to ill intent… it’s acknowledging that
something you did hurt someone. Nothing more… nothing less.”

Heeding her words would be of great value to Christians, especially because they fall in line with the
word of God.

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

As you can clearly see from this scripture, the Bible requires that we acknowledge the offense of
others and resolve it before we can offer gifts that are acceptable to Him.

Cobbs, a successful vocalist, who has received numerous awards and accolades for her powerful
praise and worship ministry, frequently shares personal thoughts, funny videos, fashion photos and
scriptural quotes on Instagram.
