Forgive & Love ❤️ ‼️
“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” “For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.” “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone.
Forgiveness is ultimately an act of love for yourself – to allow you to feel peace, joy, and love again. Forgiveness not only helps heal your emotional scars, but physical ones, too.
Forgiveness is a manifestation of love. People who truly love each other, whether in a marital relationship, as friends, or as family members, as examples, will forgive one another because of their outgoing concern for each other. Forgiveness is one way of expressing love and commitment to another human being.
“Love prospers when a fault is forgiven, but dwelling on it separates close friends.” “Hatred stirs old quarrels, but love overlooks insults.” “As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.”
“The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him.”
If you cannot forgive, you cannot sustain love. Sooner or later a loved one will say or do something hurtful. Then a test of love will ensue. Without the aid of forgiveness, you will not be able to right and restore the relationship.
One more thing about true love is that it does not keep grudges. After forgiving the other person for any mistake, you are willing to forget and let go of what happened.
