Anyone can hold a grudge, but it takes a person with character to forgive.


Anyone can hold a grudge, but it takes a person with character to forgive. When you forgive, you release yourself from a painful burden. Forgiveness doesn't mean what happened was OK, and it doesn't mean that person should still be welcome in your life. It just means you have made peace with the pain, and are ready to let it go.

  1. Forgiveness is not easy
    To give to others when we’re wronged.
    But if we do not give it
    Our hurt and pain will be prolonged.
    Like a wound that is infected
    And gets worse as time goes by.
    We can not just ignore it
    No matter how hard that we try.
    Sometimes there are no reasons
    For the things that people do.
    No excuses or explanations
    That justify what they put us through.
    But remember…Jesus told us to forgive
    The same way our Father forgives us.
    So we can move toward the love
    Instead of staying bitter and callused.
    Forgiveness releases the negative
    That has consumed and taken over.
    It frees us. To love and live again
    As our hardened heart grows softer.
    Yes…Forgiveness can be very hard
    But it’s something we must do.
    If we want God to forgive us
    Then…We must forgive others too !
