Forgiving… some more sound advice

Got this from one of my favourite Pastors about forgiving and thought I should share it…

When we forgive, we seek love and the Bible says that God is Love. If we don’t forgive, we are turning in the opposite direction – away from God.

Choosing forgiveness doesn’t excuse the other person’s behaviour. It simply releases the debt they owe you so that God can release the debt you owe Him.

Isn’t that so true? Now lets go out into the world and forgive all for whatever whenever!

  1. eh madam….

    choosing forgiveness doesnt excuse the other person’s behaviour… okay.

    it reduces the debt they owe you??????? that implies that u have a little store keeping track of “debts”..beef, so to speak… i thot the point was for us not to have “stores” to begin with..

    which means i havent been keeping track all this time!!!

    ((almost wrote my own post here..but lemme forgive u :D))

  2. inevitably as humans, we do have those stores. you didn’t know? i guess i have educated you a bit then.

    it’s good that you haven’t been. but i think that subconciously you have been doing it.
