Forgiveness

On the occasion of World Forgiveness Day, I had given a small speech on Forgiveness as a “thought” in my school this June. Well it was easy for me to hunt stuff over the internet and write down the words but my effort and words were appreciated.

3 months have passed since and I don’t have a record of my words and my brain fails to remember the details.

But I think this is what I told.

We often face challenges in life and we confront opponents who offend and insult us on our faces and behind our backs. Even though, I have called them opponents, they might be friends or foes. They can hurt us and break our heart.

They might have asked for forgiveness or probably not. But we must do our duty. We must do what we are supposed to do. We must forgive them for their actions and treat them with love.

The Bible instructs us to forgive as the Lord forgave us:
Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
Colossians 3:13

Forgiveness is the greatest and most powerful form of love. Sometimes it brings an enemy down to an acquaintance and an acquaintance to a friend.


There is no love without forgiveness, and there is no forgiveness without love. 
Bryant H. McGill

It is one of the few forms of love which does not imitate. This love is the love which will always be remembered by the forgiven and it will be the secret strength of the forgiver.


Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
Luke 6:37

So, people, remember that your duty is to forgive and you just have to forgive.
