Does Forgiveness Help You or Them?

I know we all have read a million articles on forgiveness and have heard a thousand speeches on the same topic. But nonetheless, forgiveness is one of the most difficult gifts to give to anyone including you.

Every time someone does something wrong to us, we are left with a feeling of hurt, anger and vengeance. We find it very difficult to let go of the hurt. Forgiveness isn't forgetting, but it’s letting go of the hurt. It's not something you bestow on others, but a gift you give to yourself.

The hurt and pain someone has caused you may always be a part of your life, but forgiveness will help loosen its grip on you so that you can move on.

And as for whom to forgive, start with a friend who has hurt you badly, and the stranger who stepped on your toe somewhere in the public, and then those in between these two extremes.

Forgiving yourself is also important. And forgive quickly because the more time you take, the more you think about it, you may never be ready to do it. So do it as soon as possible because even though it may not change the past, it will definitely change the future.

And like Joyce Meyer said in one of her books, “Do Yourself a Favour, Forgive”.

  2. Lovely. The only way to forgive without hesitating is to desire to do the will of the Father. That way, even when you don't want to, you will cos you want to please the Father.
