My beloved, l'm sharing this with you just to make you awake to the spiritual power of forgiveness. How can we pretend being the son of God if we can't forgive our offender, though God has forgiven our sins?. Let me tell you that a heart that always seek vengeance is very weak spiritually but stronger is the one that forgives. Do you really want to overcome your enmies?, a piece of advice: Never seek to hate them, no matter how painful their offences. Moreover, don't forget this: "The state of a vengeance can be much more deadly than the reason for which the vengeance is desired". "Forgiveness is greater than vengeance and compassion more powerful than anger"
Peace and Love
My friends, I tell you truly: Never seek a reason to hate anybody in your life no matter how severe the offense towards you. If you do, you shall never be agreeable to GOD. God is not going to know wheither you're right or not! only what he askes you is love and forgiveness. So think of your enemies welfare instead! Even pray hard for them asking GOD to bless them! When doing this don't think you're a coward or weak but if your enemies do not repent from harming you or speaking ill of you or seeking for your downfall, something terrible will happen: The tempest shall scatter them and you shall rejoice in the Lord . Because the words of God said: They shall be as nothing and shall perish, those who contend with you. You shall winnow them, and the wind shall carry them away. You shall seek them but you shall not find them, those who war against you shall be as nothing at all. For Lord your GOD will hold your right hand, you who does not seek vengeance for yourself. Be blessed as you really forgive
Peace and love
But, should offenders always abuse their victime's graceful heart of forgiveness? I gona share with you this story:
Once upon a time, there was a boy named Ye tung who studied at the shaolin temple. He was given a new master when he was nine. This master would forgive whatever he did, no matter how severe, as long as Ye tung would say: "I'm sorry". Instead of any kind of punishment, the master would just ask Ye tung to say he was sorry. It didn't matter what he'd done. And the boy got very good at saying he was sorry. One day, he was playing with some lighted candles in the temple of the shinning waters. He dropped a candle and the next thing he knew, there was a fire burning out of control. He ran just as fast as he possibly could until something made him stop. He returned, hopping he would have a chance to apologise to the teacher. He was sure that saying those words would redeem him, but there was no longer opportunity for him to say those words. The fire made sure of that.Alas! the master died in the flaming temple...and the boy stpoped saying: "I'm sorry".
So,just as the boy learned how to stop saying those words, some of us need to learn how to say them: "I'm sorry", but without abusing
Peace and love
