FORGIVENESS – IS AN ACT OF GENEROSITY
A small spirited and stingy person can never express forgiveness.
However the moment a person forgives – their soul is enlarged.
I have a saying that has come from situations in my life. “The bigger person builds the bridge.”
The bigger spirited person is the one who must build the bridge over the chasm created by an offence.
To be able to forgive in life one must learn – GIVENESS before FORGIVENESS.
In other words you must create a life of loving generosity toward all people.
Before He could FORGIVE He had to first GIVE.
For God so loved the world He gave His only son.
If you practise giving continually – you will develop a generous spirit – out of which forgiveness can flow easily.
You can’t hate what you have sown into.
I am amazed at people who take everything you give, and still end up taking offence and walking out of your world.
It’s simple – they never sowed generously into your shared world to give it a value worth fighting for.
What you invest into – you will protect.
Stop being a critical consumer who is easily offended, and commit to being a generous investor who values shared fields of dreams.
Giveness – always prepares you for forgiveness.
Forgiveness is simply – continuing to be generous – in negative and hurtful situations.
