To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you. Lewis Smedes
I wrote an article advancing a revolutionary notion: Forgiveness isn’t… easy.
We all struggle to forgive when we’ve been hurt. That’s sort of obvious.
So here’s a question: If it’s so hard, why bother? Why go to all the trouble of forgiving?
Why not get revenge? Why shouldn’t I make that other person suffer? Why just let it go and let him get away with it?
