To forgive is Divine!
Why can't people forgive? What could someone do to you to hold a grudge against someone for YEARS?
I remember the good old Arabic movies, "Did someone kill your father"?? How much is too much for forgiveness??
I pride myself on the fact that I have the capacity to forgive, I do it all the time. But not with everyone, and not for everything. Certain things and certain people I just can't forgive. I have no idea why. But no matter what I do, I just can't forgive them.
And these are people who have done so much damage in my life. Or caused tremendous amount of pain to me. Please stress on tremendous!
I find it extremely immature for people to just live their lives carrying the same ideas, and judgement about someone for too long, mainly because people do change. People have the capacity to improve. Everyone can potentially get better, and better and, with time, whatever it was that made us not forgive them, is no longer even significant!
I have seen a couple of amazing examples of people who have had a couple skirmishes. Only to grow best of friends after that!
But it all had to start with a noble act of forgiveness....
So, who're you going to forgive today?
