A Forgiving Heart

Updated on February 22, 2011

Can you think of anyone that you haven't forgiven?  We read in the bible about forgiving others, we know it is right.  There has been numerous scientific studies done on forgiveness and it has been known to beneficial to our health.  It makes sense.  When you are angry or have a grudge, your food doesn't digest properly, you may eat faster and not even chew properly.  You might even make bad choices of what to eat because of stress,  you probably would eat more fast food.  

Because of not forgiving someone you might not pray anymore or hardly ever, thus causing more stress.  Bitterness can grow in your heart and effect your immune system.  If you think that forgiving someone is a really hard task, I assure you that it is harder not to forgive them. You might say, "You don't know what they did to me or said to me", no I don't, but God does and he will help you overcome.

We hear all this talk about forgiveness and usually it is about forgiving others.  We also need to remember to forgive ourselves.  Shame, guilt and anger can be causes to depression. Forgive yourself today as well.

      Good read. I agree with Dave Matthews, forgiving is easy but forgetting is quite hard. I guess we just have to turn the technology in our mins where in we delete/edit the bad experiences and just keep and remember the good ones. Thanks for sharing this.

      Sky321: Forgiving is easy, unfortunately Forgetting is very hard to do, as we are constantly reminded, even decades later of the past.

      Sky,

      Boy, what a topic. I think unforgiveness affects all of us at one time or another. Thanks for taking on a big subject.
