Forgiveness Works The Miracle of Change

When Abraham Lincoln was asked why he did not destroy his enemies. He replied, "If I make my enemies my friends, do I not thereby destroy them?"

The art of forgiveness consists of having a humble spirit.

When you forgive, you change yourself and other people as well. You free yourself from the burden of bitterness, and you loose others from chains of guilt.

Forgiveness works in two ways: You must forgive in order to be forgiven. Those who cannot forgive, break down the bridge over which they themselves must pass, for everyone needs to be forgiven.

Forgiveness should start now. Putting it off only deepens the wound. Clinging to bitterness postpones happiness.

Life is short, time is fleeing. Today is a day to forgive.
