Wipe The Slate Clean

#50 #forgiveness – a fresh start, a slate wiped clean? People often talk about it as a sort of obligation to the person who has wronged you, but sometimes it isn’t that simple. Forgiveness is a process, it does not mean that we have to ‘forgive and forget’ thus putting ourselves in a vulnerable position again – sometimes that can have dangerous implications. What it does mean is that we need to let go of the wrong, stop ranting about it, and stop the potential it has to make us bitter. “Forgive…so that your Father in heaven may also forgive you…” #mark11v12to26 Is there anything you need to start letting go of today? #morningprayer (at Ripon College Cuddesdon)
