Forgiveness brings inner healing!

In this unique time of lent, we are reminded of the quality of mercy and forgiveness. Human beings generally tend to hold grudges and find it hard to forgive one another, even for small slights. We also tend to dump our feelings on someone else. Sometimes we have been upset by a certian situation or person and we transfer our feelings onto someone who didnt even cause those feelings in the first place.


We need to learn that bitterness and resentment cause inner wounds that we may not be able to see but are no less real! Those wounds keep festering the longer you hold on to a grudge and will eventually posion and destroy you. Who are you realy hurting by holding on to unforgiveness? Only yourself.


When someone hurts you and you let go of it and even pray for that person, you actually heal inside and you can make a positive chnage in the person who hurt you! You cannot fight fire with fire. Where does the cycle of vengeance end if you decide to repay injury for injury , insult for insult? You will realize that the only way you can change people's attitudes is how you treat them. Be kind to someone who has hurt you and see how it will disarm them. Jesus is the best example of how to bring about a change of hearts. He even prayed for those who killed him and forgave them. Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make our hearts like unto thine. Amen
