Generosity involves sacrifice...

Forgiveness quote

Generosity involves sacrifice.

A blog I read the other day said this about forgiveness:

‘It’s status is of the greatest reward and yet only the strongest can do it.’

Forgiveness laid bare can be the hardest and most painful act that you can do.
However, doing so in surrender to God as He forgave us first, brings freedom and liberty.

In forgiving, your love for your neighbour overcomes the hurt. In that moment, you are not only being generous to that person, but to yourself.

Isaiah 43:25 (Amplified Bible)

I, even I, am He Who blots out and cancels your transgressions, for My own sake, and I will not remember your sins.
