The Power of Forgiveness

The Power of Forgiveness – Bill Crawford
 
Honestly, I’ve always struggled with forgiveness. It is alien to me. Yet as I grow a little older and realize just how little I deserve grace, it compels me to imitate Christ and forgive others. Holding a grudge means saying long after an offense, “I am hurt.” But forgiveness allows you to say, “I was hurt”. There is a huge difference.
 
Everyone has been burned, cut, bruised, or injured. But imagine never allowing a wound to heal to spite the one who dealt it to you. That’s what a grudge is. It’s refusing to heal until you get to inflict an injury on someone else. When I refuse to forgive others, I am condemning myself to re-live that pain every day until I forgive them.
 
Don’t delay! Don’t waste time and energy on a grudge that only hurts you. Forgive and be healed because Christ forgave you and is willing to heal you.
