Forgiveness is something all of us want to receive but most of us hesitate to give..... Forgiveness flows two ways. We cannot separate receiving forgiveness from extending forgiveness.....Forgiveness is at the core of emotional well-being. It is fair to say that unforgiving people are emotionally sick....Their bitterness is a disease of the spirit, and it is inevitable that the unforgiving person eventually will experience physical illness as well. .....Anger causes surges of adrenaline and secretes other powerful chemicals that attack the body. The stress we carry when we refuse to give or receive forgiveness affects our hearts, minds, and bodies. To make matters worse, both rage and depression contribute to obsessive behaviors such as overeating, work a holism, overspending, and even addictions to pornography and mood-altering drugs. We cannot rid ourselves of emotional pain and its side effects unless we are willing to forgive.......Forgiveness cannot begin until we admit our own failures. If we cannot do that much, we can neither give nor receive forgiveness. We cannot receive forgiveness without acknowledging our need for it, and we cannot extend forgiveness without admitting that because of our own imperfect condition we have no right to withhold forgiveness from anyone else. For Christians, forgiveness is nonnegotiable; it is the very essence of our faith...........
