We all have wounds. Some hurts go deeper than others. If forgiveness is not present the wound will fester.
Forgiveness is rarely a one-time event. More often than not, it’s something we do over and over when we notice bitterness returning.
I am convinced that to grab hold of the best that this life has to offer, we need to let go. We must learn to be good forgivers.
