Forgiveness is powerful–whether we are the ones who have been wronged or those who need forgiveness . When we do not forgive those who have hurt us, we are continuing to give them power over us. And if we are the ones who have hurt another:
“You can’t undo anything you’ve already done,
but you can face up to it.
You can tell the truth.
You can seek forgiveness.
And then let God do the rest.”*
