“Tim Keller once defined forgiveness as resolving not to bring the offence up again with God, with the person who offended us, or with ourselves. Often it is the final one of these that is the most difficult.” Sam Allberry, Why Bother With Church?
“Not forgiving is like drinking poison and waiting for the rat to die.” -Anne Lamott
“To love those who hate us, look upon the image of God in them.” -John Calvin
“Everyone says forgiveness is a lovely idea until they have something to forgive.” -C.S. Lewis

To lick your wounds, to smack your lips over grievances long past, to roll over your tongue the prospect of bitter confrontations still to come, to savor the last toothsome morsel of the pain both the pain you are given and the pain you are giving back–in many ways is a feast fit for a king. The chief drawback is that what you are wolfing down is yourself. The skeleton at the feast is you.”
