I recently read this quote by
Mark Twain on A Gathering Place blog.
Forgiveness is the fragrance
That the Violet sheds
On the heel
That has crushed it.
Let's you and I face it...Life is hard sometimes and people are not always nice to us. In fact, if we were realllllly honest...it would only take a few seconds for us to recall hurts and injustices done to us, and most likely by those closest to us.
Today, when my mind brings those hurts to the forefront and I am tempted to harbor anger, resentment, and bitterness toward that person, or personS, I will try my hardest to take that thought captive to the obedience of Christ and choose rather to FORGIVE and be free from that which only hurts me more.
Will you join me?
