Forgiving Quotes

Today I listened to a fine sermon on our need to forgive others. If you have ever preached on this topic, you join me in empathy for the preacher. Forgiveness is essential for Christian wholeness; but almost every Christian holds at least one grudge, and most of us can’t imagine ever giving ours up.

So I was inspired by these phrases from today’s sermon:

  • “If you’re keeping score (in human relationships), you’re missing the point.”
  • “God won’t ask me to forgive more than he’s forgiven me.”
  • “Resentment hurts the one resenting than the one they’re resenting.”
  • “There is absolutely no benefit to resentment.”
