We don’t usually talk a lot about forgiveness in today’s world. To forgive can be seen as a sign of weakness. But, it certainly is not. It is the ultimate sign of strength- and love. Jesus lived His life forgiving – and loving others. On the cross, He forgave His crucifiers and the “Good Thief”. After His resurrection, He forgave His followers who abandoned Him. We too can be set free if we follow His example and forgive. To do so, we receive the blessing God intended for us, We too can be set free – if we forgive.
