The man who forgives makes God present.

Those who forgive are the healers of humanity.

Rather than turning over offence or harm,

Rather than dreaming of revenge,

They stop the evil to themselves,

They exhaust its venom.

Although they could keep their fists clenched,

They open generous hands.

Deep in their heart sorrow and rancor end up overwhelmed by kindness.

Forgiveness is the most powerful action a man can fulfill.

The event that could have been the cause of an increasing brutality in the world, helps the growing of love.

People who know how to forgive transform their own wounds.

There, where they are, they heal the wound that disfigured the face of humanity since its origins: violence.

The man who forgives resembles Jesus.

The man who forgives makes God present.

Good food Poodles, Jesus stated besides that IF< we refused to forgive others, God would refuse to forgive us our sins as well, soo.

Besides this fact, those truly flooded with the spirit of God, find forgiveness easy to extend, its not a hardship, afterall, Jesus forgave us all,

Hence the good news, and he was flawless, sinnles, hence, the pergfect sacrafice and lamb of God.

Even in a secular sense, grudge-bearers are ugly, and taint themselves with the root of revenge they harbor.

It binds them up, and has power over them, hence, he who forgives finds liberty, and his very visage is altered and spirit sweetened as a result.
