This is a question asked so very often.
Why do I need to forgive?
Usually followed by the statements, they hurt me, they don't deserve it, I want them to feel what I feel.
The answer is simple.
Unforgiveness is not a good life to live.
It makes you bitter not better.
It makes you negative not positive.
It makes you angry not happy.
To not forgive is to carry the pasts pains into the present.
It becomes a burden, a weight, and not on the one who hurt you, but you yourself.
Forgiveness allows us to be free from that weight. When we forgive we not only release someone of a debt they cannot pay, but it releases us to move forward in our lives.
It frees YOU from what THEY did.
Forgiveness brings you life from death, hope from hurt, and happiness from hell.
Why not forgive today and live?
