I have been thinking about forgiveness this week. We all need to forgive someone or something and we all need to be forgiven. Have you noticed how hard it is to ask for forgiveness? I find it much easier to forgive than to ask for forgiveness. I wonder why sometimes when I know that in the end it makes the other person feel validated and is soothing not just to them but to myself as well.
It is so easy and common to ask God for forgiveness but I think He would rather have us do what is most difficult. We know what that is.
Do you find it hard to ask? Is there something that made you feel so much better by asking forgiveness?
I love this quote by Mark Twain.
"Forgiveness is the fragrance the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it."
