What do we do when we feel that people have done something to hurt us? Do we take these perceived injustices and hold onto them or do we forgive people and let them go? We can choose to count up each slight and keep a running tally of the wrongs of others or we can choose the path of forgiveness and wipe the slate clean.

The combined weight of those slights (both real and perceived) is too heavy a burden for us to carry. If we let them accumulate, we will cause incredible damage when we unleash it on those close to us. It's far healthier in the long run to practice forgiveness and erase our record of wrongs than to wield unforgiveness as a weapon.

God offers a fresh start to us each day. Can we do no less with others?
