The Gift of Forgiveness
"To forgive is to set the prisoner free and discover that the prisoner is you"
Lewis B. Smedes
How true is this statement. Often times, we are prisoner of our unforgiveness. It eats us up when we do not let go. We are literally our own prisoner,locked up by our unforgiveness. Once we forgive the other person,we will feel the release from this feeling of being held like a prisoner.
"Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, just as in Christ God forgave you". Ephesian 4:31-32(NIV)
