Jesus' own witness of sacrificial love and forgiveness, and his work to heal the sick and care for those in need, represent God's ways and vision for us.
In some ways, I am actually quite optimistic - I believe in the possibility of redemption and forgiveness.
It is not enough to know that love and forgiveness are possible. We have to find ways to bring them to life.
I think that in many ways, just as forgiveness is impossible without love, sometimes love requires forgiveness for it to work, too.
Kindness manifests in a lot of ways, such as acts of compassion, helpfulness, empathy, forgiveness, and caring. These gestures kindle and ignite feelings of love.
Those of us who came to be Christians get to remember that forgiveness cost God the death of God's son. It's an expensive thing in many ways.
I discipline churchgoers with godly lessons and sharp words if they do not change their ways. My goal is to open their hearts so that they seek forgiveness.
Forgiveness works two ways, in most instances. People have to forgive themselves too. The powerful have to forgive themselves for their behavior. That should be a sacred process.
Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.
Thanks To Those People Who Give A Taste Of Right Ways.
