Forgiveness. It's not simple, and it can seem impossible to do on a whim. But today, we challenge you to do just that. Forgiveness is a choice. It isn't saying "I wasn't hurt." Or  "What you did didn't matter." It's a way of saying, "I am strong enough, and I am capable of moving on. I am no longer held captive."

The unforgiving mind is full of fear, torn with doubt, confused about itself;  it is afraid, angry, and weak. And as sad as it is to say humanity is born into this. Bitterness and unforgiveness is innate; we are born with it. We are born with the instinct to look out for ourselves, for our pride, for our well-being, and we'd rather be dead than let someone take any of that from us.
However, forgiveness is acquired. It is DIFFERENT than what we are born to know. So today, show the immense difference God has made in your life, and forgive someone.
