“Forgiveness is not an occasional act, it is a constant attitude.” ― Martin Luther King Jr.
Everyone is wronged a some point in life. Unforgiven, these wrongdoings accumulate like scar tissue in the body of humanity. Unfortunately, that “scar tissue” is never as functional as the original tissue it has replaced.
When wrongdoings are not forgiven, they form a matrix of inflexibility in what would otherwise be a supple and resilient body, mind, and heart. Forgiven, the buildup is minimized, if not cleared altogether.
Forgiveness gives evidence of emotional and spiritual maturity. As an occasional act, forgiveness stops the wound from growing; as a constant attitude, forgiveness is restorative.
Dare to forgive…not just every now and again, but constantly!
