Benefits of Forgive right away or instant forgiveness.

Forgiveness is one thing which we need to do immediately. Otherwise, it would eat up our mental peace, time, money, life and energy. You know we have a limited time to live in this earth. Then what is the point in wasting our time for something which is of no use? Why we should forgive immediately? For some, it would take a long time to forgive. A year or two. For some, the period may extend to 10 to 20 years. If it is to forgiven eventually, why not now? That is my question. The longer we keep the grudge the greater the price we need to pay.

The other important aspect of forgiveness is that it gives more joy and peace than keeping grudge or taking revenge. If we can get joy, peace of mind and time to focus on more important things by forgiving, why should we wait? Let us do it now and enjoy the joy and benefit of forgiveness.

Some of the reasons for the forgiveness is mentioned below: You may have some more reasons. Please mention it in the comment part. It would be helpful for others to take a decision to forgive instantly.

Reasons to forgive

1. It gives us mental peace.
2. It will help us to focus on important matters of life.
3. It will reduce the stress in our brain.
4. Taking revenge will be of time, money and energy consuming.
5. Forgiveness leads to peace and happiness
6. The people to whom you forgive may be a source of help in the coming days.
7. Keeping grudge may consume your mental peace.
8. Keeping grudge and taking revenge will consume your time.
9. Keeping grudge and taking revenge will give you more trouble.
10. Keeping grudge and taking revenge will affect your moral life.
11. By forgiving we can avoid the state of depression.
12. Keeping grudge and taking revenge may take our mental control and we may do something bad which will end up in negative effect to you and to others.
13. Keeping grudge will control our mental thought process and limit to a certain extent.
14. Keeping grudge will lead to the most terrible unhappiness.
15. We should forgive others because not doing so makes them unhappy.
16. Keeping grudge will poison your whole being enough to make you physically ill.

Jesus said: "For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins." We need forgiveness. We do many mistakes every day. Some of the sins are deliberate or intentional. If we need forgiveness for our intentional and unintentional sins, we need to forgive too. To those who sin against us intentionally or unintentionally. Just as we need unconditional forgiveness, others also deserve forgiveness. Unconditional forgiveness. Apostle John said, "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." He is talking about the forgiveness of sin from God.

The longer we keep the grudge, the greater the loss would be. We need to forgive instantly. But one thing I noticed that many who preach forgiveness are very slow to forgive. It will take time for them to forgive. They have to carry the stress and strain in their brain for some time. Then they forget and forgive. If it is to forgive eventually, why not now? Instant decisions will save much stress and strain in your brain. It will help you to continue in your friendship with your friends. So, we should forgive others because not doing so makes them unhappy, but apart from that; it poisons your whole being enough to make you physically ill.

Forgive yourself or self forgiveness.

Many people find it difficult for them to forgive themselves. Why not we forgive ourselves? Who deserves it most? You cannot truly learn to forgive others until you learn to forgive yourself. If you hold on guilt, regrets.... you are closing the doors for yourself.

For your growth, for your free thinking, you need to forgive yourself. We should forgive ourselves because there is no point in looking back - you can't change the past - and God is there to forgives us completely. If we can't change the past, what is the point in not forgiving ourselves?
