I have been thinking a lot about forgiveness this week. You might have noticed that there were quite a few typos in the blog posts this week, so I guess I have needed a lot of forgiveness from all of you whilst you have been reading !
I think that forgiveness is one of those things that always seems an excellent idea in theory until you are faced with a situation where you will have to forgive and then it becomes rather more of a challenge. Some things are easier than others, your child draws on the wall, you forgive. Your spouse bumps the car, you forgive. Your workmate messes up a deal you have been working on for a long time, harder to forgive ? Someone you trusted betrays your trust, getting harder to forgive ? What about if they killed your only son ?
What a miracle that all of us are truly forgiven by God regardless of what we have done as long as we are sorry, what a chance to start again, what an opportunity to show mercy to others !
