Forgiveness in 2020

Who do you need to forgive?

As my pastor once said, forgiveness is releasing the other person from the expectation that they can fix what they did.

It doesn’t mean you condone their actions or attitudes. It doesn’t mean you grant them full access into your life again.

Even when the other person isn’t sorry or doesn’t show remorse, forgiveness releases you from carrying the burden of bitterness and anger.

Unforgiveness is like drinking poison and expecting someone else to die.

Mark Twain said that forgiveness is the scent that the flower gives off underneath the heel that crushes it.

Forgiveness is a beautiful thing.

Jesus taught in the Lord’s Prayer that God forgives us as we forgive others.

It’s also helpful to remember how very much God has forgiven us for in Jesus.

So again, who do you need to forgive?
