To Forgive

Published:

To Forgive Is To Set A Prisoner Free

 

To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.
-Lewis B. Smedes
When we choose to hold on to resentment against others, and hold on to anger for the situations that they put us in, we may not realize it, but we are only hurting ourselves.
When we hold onto the cancer that pain has caused us, we start to realize that it is because of this pain that we are holding onto, that we don't really feel freedom as we really should in our everyday lives.
Instead of your mind being able to wander in different directions so that you may be able to dream higher and reach farther, you will spend a good amount of time thinking about and dealing with old feelings and old situations that will never change because they are the past.
Always forgive and never forget. At the same time never let someone's wrongs against you ever limit your life in any way.
