I Must Work Even Harder on Myself

Still just as applicable this week as it was last. The Lord’s conforming process is never easy…

Much love.

    Something to remember about forgiveness (as I see it in any case):

    Unsolicited forgiveness can very easily appear to be an aggressive thing. Because if I tell someone who hasn’t asked for it that I forgive them nevertheless, it implies that they are in the wrong, that they have done something that I, magnanimously of course(!), can forgive.

    Does that mean that I cannot forgive those that I see as having wronged me? No, of course not. But it’s an internal process first and foremost. I may forgive them in pectore so that my own future actions won’t be colored by my resentment.

    My rule of thumb on forgiveness: it’s almost always better to remain silent and let my deeds speak for themselves. Let my future actions, not my present words, reveal my forgiveness and desire for reconciliation.
