Forgive Others

 

“Forgive others,

not because they deserve forgiveness,

but because you deserve peace.”

 

Jonathan Lockwood Huie

 

hes right you know, about peace

forgiving removes vendettas chains

releases us to be ourselves, again

 

yet I think Jesus had another goal

greater than our own peace, in mind

when He said “Forgive others”

 

forgiving, I am forgiven, peace follows

letting go of their offense to me

lets God let go of my offense to Him

 

I dont forgive because I deserve peace

I forgive because it cant be made right

my offense is too great a debt to repay
