When you forgive, you love

The Return of the Prodigal Son (Rembrandt/Hermitage Museum (St Petersburg)

When you forgive, you love”

(Jon Krakauer)

Praise the LORD, my soul,
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the LORD, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits –
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
(Psalm 103:1-5)

“It’s one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself,
to forgive.
(Maya Angelou”

When we forgive then we mirror God’s love perfectly and he forgives perfectly.
But always remember the same faults and failings we see in others are the very same faults and failings they see in us. No one is perfect, God is still working on us.
