Forgiveness does feel so much better than anger and hatred. I'm sorry you are having trouble with comments. I hope it gets resolved.

It is true about forgiveness. But sometimes it is hard to do what is best for yourself. I really appreciate your comments. Thanks

It does have positive benefits for oneself, but I think forgiveness is about reconciling a relationship and not something we do primarily for 'inner peace'.

Sue Ellen said...

We are made in the image of God, and God forgives. When we forgive, we are participating in being made in that image. The more we participate, the more we will become what God always intended for us to be.

So, yes, we are ultimately doing it for ourselves, but there is also much benefit in freeing the ones we forgive.
