I have been fascinated with your blog posts on “Barriers to Forgiveness.” Can you choose the biggest barrier? Do you think there is one major barrier we need to see and fight against?
The biggest barrier to forgiveness, I think, is pride. Pride clouds our vision so we do not see clearly. Pride inhibits our behavior so that we do not act correctly. Pride obscures our feelings so that we feel a sense of entitlement rather than humility, a call for retribution or even revenge rather than love. Pride does not allow us to move forward in the forgiveness process.
