Forgive

Practice forgiveness, generously and frequently.

Forgiveness is what leads you to freedom. Isn’t that what everyone is ultimately after?

When you hold others in judgment, you’re also holding yourself captive to the offense. Forgive and release yourself.

After all, you wouldn’t be able to judge another if you weren’t aware of whatever sin you’re judging them for anyway. That sin is also inside of you. We’re all human, and we each share all of those same human qualities and foibles.

When we hold another under our foot so we can look down on them as we step on them in judgment, we’re also held, now stuck to that same tragic spot.

Forgive, not because they deserve it, but because you deserve to be free.
