A virtue of the brave

Forgiveness is a virtue of the brave
– Gandhi

A coward indeed I am. To overlook an offense. One of the first things I learned in small groups. How easily I take it lightly. I expect too much of people that I take it against them that they did not consider how others would feel aka how I would feel.

Only when we have seen how much Jesus overlooked in us- are we able to overlook the offense of others. The gravity of our offense he didn’t just overlook; he wiped it away from his memory as if we never did it.
