We don’t forgive others necessarily for their benefit – we do it for our benefit.

When forgiving others, we must remember that perfection of character is NOT of this world! We have ALL done something in life that has hurt another…in one way or another, some more than others…etc etc…

One thing that’s important. When we forgive, we are not forgetting. The phrase “to forgive and forget” is dangerous and a bit unrealistic. Yes, we should forgive. However, we should never forget. If we “forget”, then we run the risk of forgetting and being misled or missing important life lessons. Forgiving others does not mean that we have to send them Christmas cards every year or invite them to dinner. It means that we have prevented their actions from blocking our encounters with the true essence and nature of love in all things and people who are in our lives now or who will be in the future. Forgive, my friends, let it go. Give it to God, Let God and Forgive to learn to love again. Forgive!
