The value of Forgiveness

Forgiveness can most definitely be difficult. (I already know, easier said than done because I have been there and am still working on it) … but …reality is, in the long run, it is easier to forgive than to live with bitterness or contributing retribution. With this, you can move away from the pain of the past, and achieve real freedom. Forgiveness is not about who is to blame, or who’s fault it was, it’s more so about letting go, completely and permanently within yourself. Forgiveness is recognizing the reality that what has happened has happened and there’s no point in allowing the pain to dominate you any longer. It enables you to move forward in a positive way. Carrying around a load of resentment can be a burden on yourself when if you choose, it does not have to be. “Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” Ephesians 4:31-32
