Forgiveness frees us from the past. Forgiveness allows us to love.
Men are that they might have joy! Contentment and peace are opposite forces. Because of this, they can not reside together. In order for us to feel peace, we first must learn to forgive.
It is hard to do this on our own. We need help from above.
Forgiveness takes courage, Love, and gratitude. Courage to find the strength from within, Love towards others, and gratitude to our Savior for taking away the pain.
