Part 1: Do You Even Understand What Forgiveness Is?
June 28, 2020
Is my life better because I’m withholding forgiveness? Do I rest easier at night because my anger smolders against someone who wronged me? What if they’re never exposed for what they actually are? What if you never get justice? What if they never acknowledge what they did to you? What if they go to the grave denying they ever hurt you? Now ask yourself, am I going to let that person – the person who hurt me – decide when I get better? Forgiveness is what lets the pain out. Or as Bishop T.D. Jakes says, “Forgiveness is about empowering yourself rather than empowering your past.”
