Forgiveness

Gandhi said, “ The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong.” I imagine everyone has someone in their life to forgive. We forgive people who have harmed us not because they asked for our forgiveness, not because they deserve our forgiveness, but because we deserve peace. When you choose to forgive someone you take away their power. Forgiveness does not excuse their behavior. Forgiveness frees us from the negative energy that binds you. Nelson Mandela agrees, “When a deep injury is done to us, we never heal until we forgive.” Pray to your God for the strength to forgive the people who have hurt you. You will know a new sense of freedom.  Peace to your hearts, Sarah
