Forgiveness is the cure when we want to take revenge. (Anonymous)

Although we often want to “get even” with someone who has wronged us, it really doesn’t help. Judith Orloff, M.D. put it this way: “Forgiveness is a paradigm-shifting solution for transforming anger. It liberates you from the trap of endless revenge so that you can experience more joy and connection.” Sounds really biblical, doesn’t it?

Love prospers when a fault is forgiven, but dwelling on it separates close friends. (Proverbs 17:9)
