~ Wisdom for Wednesday ~

~ Forgiveness ~

"For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses."
~ Matthew 6:14-15

Many people are afraid to forgive because they feel they must remember the wrong or they will not learn from it. The opposite is true. Through forgiveness, the wrong is released from its emotional stranglehold on us so that we can learn from it.
Through the power and intelligence of the heart, the release of forgiveness brings expanded intelligence to work with the situation more effectively. 
~ David McArthur & Bruce McArthur

Forgiveness is a funny thing. It warms the heart and cools the sting.
~ William A. Ward
