WHY FORGIVE?

"Donald Miller points out that there are several practical reasons why we need to forgive. 'The first, is because, believe it or not, forgiveness is a pleasurable experience. No kidding, it feels much better than anger or hate... The second second reason for you to forgive is that it removes you from being entangled in the rather dark thing that hurt you in the first place... Forgiveness gives you a taste of what it feels like to be God, and it's a terrific feeling. God forgave us because it gave Him pleasure to do so. He was happy to do so. Love forgives, and so does God, and so can you. The third reason to forgive is that you open yourself up to amazing possibilities for a happy life. When you don't forgive, you draw the curtains in your soul and your life gets dark. When you forgive you let the light in again, and you go on about your life in peace. And don't you want some peace? Feeling entangled, embittered, defeated? Isn't it time you came up for air? Isn't it time for some peace?" Ann Spangler on Forgiveness
