Believe it or not, there is NO psychology behind forgiveness.

Get past those who mutter and would keep you from the forgiveness of God ~ get on with it.

Throw aside pride and denounce schemes of apologies which are only self-serving deceptive displays of sorrow.

Stand up, get noticed, call God to look, humble yourself before God and man. Promise a bunch of good deeds and to pay back times 4 the wrong you have committed.

In addition doing all in joy!

 All the people saw this and began to mutter, “He has gone to be the guest of a sinner.”  

But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.”

 Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham.  For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” Luke 19:7-10

[ Bonus Wisdom ]

Don’t come to me with you shallow, empty a-p-o-l-o-g-i-e-s.

Here is some bonus wisdom which should not have to be told to those honestly seeking forgiveness.

Here is the wisdom:

Do not offer an apology. Jesus did not bleed, suffer and die on a cross to gain your apology.

Do not insult the forgiveness of God.

How much more severely do you think someone deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified them, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace? Hebrews 10:29

(huffingtonpost.com)—Do apologies work? What makes them meaningful and sincere? What are the essential parts of an apology? Is there a point when too many apologies for the same act become hollow words? What makes some people capable of forgiveness, while others will never be able to move past someone’s transgressions? How does the public really feel about apologies from political figures, athletes, and celebrities? Believe it or not, there is a psychology behind all of it. There are reasons that some apologies are successful, while others are epic failures. What those factors are can make all the difference between forgiveness, being forgiven, and being written off for good.

Let’s start with what makes an apology meaningful? One of the most important factors is that the individual show’s true remorse for what you have done wrong, and that they say they are sorry. They should acknowledge that they understand the impact that their words or actions have had on the other person. It is essential that they admit their guilt to the person they have hurt. An apology of, “I am sorry that you got upset about me doing that, is not an apology.” Sincerity, and a clear demonstration that you mean what you are saying goes a long way. People will read a heartless apology from a mile away. Apologies should be timely, meaning soon after the event, not days, weeks, or months later. Also, be sure to tell the other person what you will change in the future to make sure this never happens again. This is vitally important
