The author quotes Louis B Smedes “To forgive is to set a prisoner free and to discover that prisoner was you.” Read on…great advice on forgiveness.
Forgiveness is such a personal experience. For some, like me, it is easy to forgive. It just doesn’t feel good to be angry. I remind myself often that I am far from perfect. I say things and I do things that I often regret. In fact sometimes I am just plain ashamed of myself for the way I behave. We do things and say things when we are emotionally charged and sometimes there is just no turning back. It happens. We all do it so how could I possibly hold someone to a higher standard than I am capable of myself? When I forgive someone, I feel a lightness replace the heaviness that was weighing on my heart. I believe Louis B Smedes sums it up best with this thought provoking quote:
” To forgive is to set a prisoner free and to discover that prisoner was you.”
