The weak can never forgive

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong.” A friend sent me that quote in an email yesterday and it’s truth just jumped out at me. The source of the quote was Mahatma Gandhi, who was no stranger to forgiveness. Gandhi is said to have forgiven the man who shot him before he died. That’s powerful. While dying on the cross, Jesus said, “Forgive them father for they know not what they do.” That’s radical forgiveness. I think that’s what we’re called to.

May the Lord give you peace.
