Five things we should be willing to say when appropriate.

2. I was wrong
1 John 1:9 – “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us fromall unrighteousness."
- I forgive you
Colossians 3:13 – “bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.”
3. I love you
2 Thessalonians 1:3 – “We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is fitting, because your faith grows exceedingly, and the love of every one of you all abounds toward each other.”
4. You’re a great help to me
1 Thessalonians 5:11 – “Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.”
5. Jesus is the Christ the Son of the Living God
