Learn to "Forgive" to set free the prisoner in you.I happen to come across the verses from the Holy Bible, in the gospel of St. Matthew 6:9-13 "The Lord's prayer - And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us." This verse is more challenging as it requires us to act before the Almighty God i.e. When we ask him to forgive us our trespasses or sins, there is a condition that asks us to forgiven the trespasses or sins of others against us.
Lewis B. Smedes once quoted that "To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you." When we have a grudge against anyone, we keep on thinking about it and anger, hatred, revenge, pain, etc keeps on making a house on our mind and we are never able to relax.
It is not an easy task to forgive others repeated mistakes or easy to learn to forget and forgive but we need to make an effort to believe in and act on 'forgive and forget' policy. What do the members feel about setting the prisonr free from oneself by forgiving others?
