‘…People who hang on to grudges are more likely to experience severe depression and post-traumatic stress disorder, as well as other health conditions…’ – John Hopkins Medicine
Un-forgiveness causes physical, mental and spiritual damages. It clogs the pipe that transports blessings. But when we forgive, we’re acting in obedience to God, freeing ourselves from bondage, while allowing God’s blessings to flow in.
To forgive is a choice. God chose to forgive us not because we deserved it. He does not remember our sins anymore; and does not hold them against us! Let us forgive ourselves, and those who offend us.
