Forgiveness

Into every heart and every mind comes the random need to forgive. Into every friendship and every relationship appears the need to be forgiven. While man is capable of finding the love to forgive, we fail at allowing ourselves to be loved so that we can be forgiven. As another year unfolds let us make new resolutions to focus more on being loved than on loving. To this end we will be closer to the reception of an unfailing love- the kind the Psalmist alluded to.

This week I found myself seeking forgiveness from the most unlikely sources and in doing so enjoyed a conversation that relied more on my ability to listen than to speak. It is not uncommon that we rush to make noise rather than hunger for the stillness that comforts us. Today make a decision to seek out the relationships that have been strained by time and compromised by selfishness and without keeping score ask for forgiveness. You will find that in being forgiven you gain the greatest freedom of all- a life unburdened. If man does not forgive you because they are keeping score go on bent knee to the one who made forgiveness His career.

  1. Powerful sharing, Krish! Thanks for shaking up my paradigm. To focus on being loved rather than to love is a great paradox. The unburdened life - the feeling of Christian from the Pilgrim's Progress when the heavy load was loosed, are priceless and elusive peace and freedom that can only come from Forgiveness.

  2. Forgiveness is such an integral part of our Christian walk. Your words on this most important admonition of our Creator should be taken as they are intended in your beautiful commentary!
