Forgive. Forget. Repeat.

“Forgiveness, like every other skill of grace, requires practice—difficult, demanding practice. None of is naturally a born forgiver: we make our entrances and exits filled with the self-importance of self-will. We tell ourselves we shouldn’t grovel when we are in the wrong, and we don’t want seem too easy when someone begs our pardon. We spend our lifetimes making half-apologies and offering but half the grace once given us. It’s time to practice all the love that daily saves us from ourselves—from anger, violence, and greed. The grace we give will never match the grace we’re given, but still the Great Forgiver bids us practice. So stay in grace.”
