Practicing Forgiveness

I received two tweets back to back and I thought it was a perfect word.

#Forgiveness isn't for the other person; it's for you. #ExploreGod @exploregod

At some point it has to go from being highlighted in your Bible to being written on your heart @DeannaFarley

True forgiveness means there is no bitterness in your heart for the other person.  We are asked to be the salt of the earth. The value of salt value back in the day could be used as currency.  It was also a method for healing and soothing.  If you add a pinch of salt to many desserts, the salt both heightens flavor and creates contrast.  My in laws being true coffee drinkers know just as well, salt will also eliminate coffee’s bitterness.

At some point we must start to truly practice forgiveness. When we truly practice love, we have the opportunity to change the flavor of our bitter situations.  Be the salt of the Earth.
