To err is human, to forgive divine. ~Alexander Pope
I don’t know about you but when I read this quote I’m dismayed. I have no problem with the erring part and the human part—I can do that quite well sometimes!—but the forgiving and the divine part…yeah…that can be another story at times.
Especially when I’m supposed to forgive someone who isn’t sorry at all. In fact, they can’t understand what’s the problem because in their mind they didn’t do anything wrong. And, to add insult to injury, some people are adept at twisting things so that I start to believe I am the one who has to apologize!
We’ll talk about forgiveness all week. This is an important topic because oftentimes it’s unforgiveness that’s holding us back. I’ll be sharing techniques and resources with you so visit this blog each day.
See you tomorrow!
