Forgiving; to pardon or acquit, to cease to feel resentment against
Forgiveness is the fragrance a violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.
To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover the prisoner was you.
When somebody you’ve wronged forgives you, you’re spared the dull and self-diminishing throb of a guilty conscience. When you forgive somebody who has wronged you, you’re spared the dismal corrosion of bitterness and wounded pride.
Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
