Times of Rest When Forgiving

The quest for forgiveness need not be a continual bicycle race to the end. We cannot forgive constantly any more than we can stay on the bicycle for days at a time without rest. Forgiveness is hard work and so we need to realize this. We need time to refresh, to renew, and then to proceed again.

Forgiveness is not a one-time act for most of us. Instead, it is a journey. This journey has a beginning and when we forgive one person for one event, forgiveness has an end. At the same time, living a forgiving life does not have an end in this lifetime. We are constantly discovering new facets to this diamond.

Take the time to refresh when forgiving one person for one unjust event. And do not forget to enjoy the life-long journey of growing as a forgiving person.

    It seems that society today pushes us so hard that we feel like we have never done enough. I for one needed this reminder. Thank you.

    In an over achieving world, it is good to think of resting at times from our labors. Forgiveness is difficult work and so rest is necessary.

    It is June and I want to kick-back some. Thank you for the reminder that I do not have to drive at this.

    I have now rested from the forgiveness journey, as you sometimes call it. I am ready to walk the path again.
