Forgiveness

   The Bible says a lot about it, we’ve all heard a trailer-truck load of sermons on it, yet it almost always presents an enormous challenge to us.  I have concluded that forgiveness benefits the person doing the forgiving far more than the person who is forgiven.  Unforgiveness will eat like a raging cancer at the person who holds in his heart.  It will consume and inprison him, while the person against whom the ill feelings are held is going about his business, and for the most part, unaware of the whole thing.  To forgive is not to say that whatever the other person did was okay, but it is to put it in its proper place, where it is no longer mentally and emotionally invested in.  For the Christian, there is clear biblical instruction as to what we are to do, and there is the unfailing promise of God, as to what He will do.
