" Forgiveness....The Mightiest Sword.."

Forgiveness is a lonely word in life. I myself have experienced difficulty in forgiving. But when you seek happiness and love,learning to forgive will open the door to that destination.

There is this quote I found by Jane Eyre.

Is the mightiest sword
Forgiveness of those you fear
Is the highest reward
When they bruise you with words
When they make you feel small
When it's hardest to take
You must do nothing at all...

Jesus showed the unforgiving world that Forgiveness can conquer the mightiest foe.

In a scene in the movie Jesus of Nazareth, Barabas knew that Jesus can play a
big role in leading the Jews to a major uprising against the Romans.He continued
to persuade Jesus to join him and gather the people for war. But Jesus replied and Barabas did not like the answer..."Love your enemies, Forgive those who do you wrong".Jesus continued to say that there will come a time when the Lion will lay down with the Lamb and there will be no more fighting.There will be lasting peace.

Barabas then has no idea of the deeper meaning of what Jesus had in mind. He was about to conquer the Romans and the world without using the sword.He was about to draw the world to Him by offering His life and forgiveness. Eventually, what was then an empire that persecuted the early Christians and the Jews has become His very throne marked by the symbolic Keys of Heaven in St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. A clear victory indeed and His kingdom have expanded all over the world as many people accepted salvation through Him.

It is said that Love has its power through Forgiveness. You cannot totally love
anybody if you don't know how to forgive. So when Jesus said when He was about to die on the cross full of Love in His heart for His people, He continued to say " Father forgive them for they know not what they do ".

Instead of losing His people to sin, Forgiveness opens the door for a new beginning. A chance to make things much better than before. And looking forward for a union with God in Heaven. Forgiveness offers serenity and peace. Happiness can be achieved if there is peace and serenity around you. Constant forgiveness makes a hardened heart melt. And sets free the living soul inside you.

In Christianity the " Lord's Prayer " tells us that when we seek forgiveness from God we must forgive those people who have sin against us first. God wants to see the sincerity in our hearts. It is not easy but the rewards are much greater. No earthly wealth can buy peace. It is earned and the only way to lasting peace is forgiveness.

" What power has love but forgiveness " - W.C. Williams

" He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love " - Martin Luther King Jr.

" Love has it's power through forginess. You cannot totally love anybody if you don't forgive." I like that son. There is freedom in forgiveness. I like the simplicity of this statement:

" If people talk negatively about you. Live in such a way that no one will believe them. "

God bless. I love you.

Thanks Tay,

I also think that way. Sometimes it is good for the heart to listen than the ears. The heart refines the messages conveyed and turned them into peaceful words.

God bless Tay and I love you too.
Always pray for me and my family.
