For those times, which we all have, when we just plain err, inadvertantly hurt people we love, or have simply done wrong, let the Word of the Lord through David in Psalm 51 be a comfort to us!
From Psalm 51 ~
Have mercy on me, O God,
according to your unfailing love;
according to your great compassion
blot out my transgressions.
Wash away all my iniquity
and cleanse me from my sin...
wash me, and I will be whiter than snow...
Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me...
Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit...
Open my lips, Lord,
and my mouth will declare your praise.
You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it;
you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.
My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart
you, God, will not despise.
Glad for His word and His way,
