It is said that God does not want us to apologize for our past indiscretions. He does not accept our apologies for our sins. It is our good behaviors when faced with the same temptations and adversities that God accepts as our apology. Actions speak more than words.
It is easy for us to apologize, and promise to be good. But when temptation arises, how difficult it is to keep our promise. When stress occurs, how easy is it to control one’s anger? Again, action speaks more than words. Good behavior is what God accepts as our apology for our past sins.
Causality appears to be the mechanism which God tests our faith. We reap what we sow. The appearance of adversity and suffering allows us the opportunity to apologize to God. If we confront adversity in a positive attitude, we have the ability to sow good seeds that will blossom into joy in the future. This is what God accepts as our apology for past sins. But we all know it takes hard work for us to eliminate the evils of greed and arrogance that is in our minds. We often fail in our commitment to God to be good. But the law of causality continues to place opportunities in front us daily to change our behavior, and to apologize to God.
