Forgiveness is giving grace.
It is an attitude that must prevail in order to
release the negativity that surrounds the act.
If we do not forgive, we bring an ember into our soul
that will burn until snuffed out by grace.
The Lord gives us grace every day, and
we do not see it or understand it.
His grace is his love that covers a multitude of our sins.
Should we withhold forgiveness or
grace to others to satisfy our pride;
it will only produce bitterness, sadness, and resentment.
The Lord tells us, Romans 12:18
If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
