The Power of the Apology

Hey Guys – I know it’s been a while but I’m back!

I wanted to speak to you today about apologies. No it’s not what you think, not receiving apologies, but the power of giving an apology. You have the power to bring healing to someones life, by simple heartfelt words. Though the reality is, the offended could move on with their life perfectly fine without an apology, but how much better if you unlocked forgiveness and healing in someone else’s life. Here are some of the benefits for giving the grace of an apology.

  • When you ask for forgiveness the person hurt receives emotional healing
  • After an apology is received the hurt person no longer sees you as a threat.
  • Apology helps keeps us from being stuck in the past.
  • Apology opens the door to forgiveness by allowing us to have empathy for the wrongdoer.
A lot of times we talk about receiving forgiveness, but I wanted to turn it a little and discuss about giving it. Your mouth has the power to heal. What relationships are in your life that is decaying due to un-dealt issues? Be the first to step up, give those words and supply healing in someones life.
