Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. ?Ephesians 4:32
There is great strength in forgiveness. When you decide to forgive, you make a conscious choice to move on from negative emotions that bind you. You let go of thoughts and feelings that take up valuable space in your heart and mind where happiness and love of yourself should live.
Forgiveness is as much a gift to you as the person you absolve.
