    Forgiving You...

    To forgive someone, you must care about them. When we care about people and we hurt them our first instinct is to apologize. It is a test to see if you care in return. If you stick your nose in the air and walk away obviously they didn't care. If they look at you and forgive you...

    To Forgive Is To Free Yourself

    I have held on to my fair share of anger....even feelings of hatred. I'll be honest and say that they have taken their toll on me. The funny thing is that we often hold on to these negative feelings in an attempt to hurt those who hurt us. The reality is that clinging to our...

    Moving Mountains

    I Forgive You. I happen to believe that forgiveness is an art. While I am aware that many, many people see forgiveness as indicative of weakness, I think I can make a pretty decent argument for the complete opposite interpretation. It begins right at the moment when we first...

    Forgiving Is Difficult

    Forgiveness is a weird concept.

    People attempt to manipulate others by playing the "forgiveness" card. Especially if they think you are a Christian. The typical approach is, "I m sorry for what I did to you. But, since you are a good Christian you are a good Christian you have to "forgive and forget...

    Personal Growth

    When we hold on to resentments it festers and in turn others get hurt in the crossfire whether it's intentional or not. It closes the doors to growing as people, spiritually and emotionally. To truly forgive, one must step outside of themselves and see things as a whole and not...

    We must develop and maintain the capacity to

    forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.
