7 'A's of Confession

Tomorrow during my first message on Psalm 103 I'll be mentioning the 7 'A's of confession found in Ken Sande's excellent book The Peacemaker.  To facilitate being able to fully listen tomorrow without worrying about having to write them all down, here they are for easy reference:

  1. Address everyone involved (All those whom you affected)
  2. Avoid if, but, and maybe (Do not try to excuse your wrongs)
  3. Admit specifically (Both attitudes and actions)
  4. Acknowledge the hurt (Express sorrow for hurting someone)
  5. Accept the consequences (Such as making restitution)
  6. Alter your behavior (Change your attitudes and actions)
  7. Ask for forgiveness
