Quotes In The Bible About Forgiveness

Forgiveness is the ability to let go of anger and resentment towards someone who has done something wrong. It’s not easy, but it can be easier to forgive when you realize how much it will help you. Forgiveness doesn’t just benefit the person who does the forgiving, it also helps the person being forgiven.

“To err is human; to forgive, divine.”

“To err is human; to forgive, divine.”

Alexander Pope’s famous quote on forgiveness is as true today as it has ever been. Your ability to forgive others is a sign of your own maturity and strength. To err is human: everyone makes mistakes, but when we can take the time to extend grace toward another person who has hurt us, we are proving ourselves capable of growth and maturity. Forgiveness isn’t easy–it takes courage and compassion–but in the end, it’s worth it!

“Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.”

The quote above is a good reminder that forgiveness isn’t just about the person you’re forgiving, but also the way you can empower yourself to let go of past hurt and move forward.

Forgiveness is a choice, not an obligation!

If someone wronged you, they have an opportunity to earn your trust again. If they don’t take advantage of that chance, it’s okay to walk away from them forever if that’s what you want—but forgiveness isn’t always about letting people back into your life if they’ve caused harm; sometimes we need to take care of our own emotional health first before we’re ready for that kind of relationship again

“Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness.”

Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness.

“Forgiveness does not mean you’re forgetting what happened or forgiving a crime against you. Forgiveness means that you allow yourself to release your anger and resentment in order to let go of your pain.”

“There is no love without forgiveness, and there is no forgiveness without love.”

Forgiveness is a choice that you can make. It’s a decision to forgive and forget, no matter the circumstances. Forgiveness is the way you show love, compassion, and courage in the face of anger and hurt feelings.

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”

You may have heard that forgiveness is a sign of strength, but what does it mean? As the quote above suggests, forgiveness requires an understanding of self. You need to know who you are and what you want before you can forgive someone else for their actions. In other words, if you allow another person’s mistake or wrongdoing to define your life then they will always win; they’ve made their mark on your own character, so now there’s no escaping them.

Forgiveness is a choice we make every day—we choose not to hold onto negative feelings and thoughts about others because we know it’s better for ourselves and our mental health. The next time someone hurts us or says something rude or mean without thinking about how their words might affect us, try remembering this quote from Tolstoy:

“The weak can never forgive; Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”

“Forgive others not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace.”

Forgiveness is about creating peace in your life. It’s not about forgetting or excusing someone’s behavior; it’s about letting go of the pain that haunts you and turning the page on your story so you can move on with your life.

Forgiveness allows us to heal, both mentally and physically. The Bible says, “Love covers over a multitude of sins” (1 Peter 4:8). When we forgive others, they don’t see our anger or hate anymore—they see love instead!

“We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.”

Forgiveness is a choice, and it’s also a gift you give yourself. When you make the decision to forgive someone, or something, it’s like wrapping that person in grace and mercy. You’re saying “I understand what happened was wrong” or “I forgive you” because they aren’t at fault for their actions. Forgiveness is a decision made by the forgiver in order to free themselves from anger and resentment towards another human being or even an animal or object (like an umbrella).

Unfortunately humans tend to hold onto painful memories for years on end without ever forgiving those who have wronged them in some way due to fear of being hurt again; however this may lead us down path filled with anger which can lead one down road filled with bad decisions such as lashing out physically at others when provoked instead of thinking rationally about situation before reacting emotionally out of anger caused by perceived grievance suffered under unfair circumstances according to person’s perspective on matters due lack understanding about how someone else might feel during situation involving conflict between two parties involved which could be solved amicably if both parties were willing cooperate instead allowing own pride get involved without considering consequences until after damage done has already occurred while time passes by slowly but surely until years later when realization comes too late regretting decisions made based upon limited information available at time only resulting vicious cycle repeating itself over again every time happens again until finally breaks free from chains holding him back

“True forgiveness is when you can say, ‘Thank you for that experience.'”

True forgiveness is when you can say, “Thank you for that experience.” You don’t have to forget it, but you can release the pain and move on.

Forgiveness often comes after a period of healing. Sometimes this takes years; sometimes it takes months; sometimes it takes weeks or even days. Forgiveness will look different for each person, but the main thing to remember is that true forgiveness happens only when we learn to let go of something that no longer serves us in our lives and replace it with something better than what we had before—like kindness or compassion instead of anger or resentment—and then put those new values into action whenever possible throughout our day-to-day experiences with other people (and ourselves).

“Anger makes you smaller, while forgiveness forces you to grow beyond what you were.”

Forgiveness is a positive choice. It is a gift you give yourself, not the other person. When you choose to forgive someone, you are making a decision to let go of your anger and resentment, which provides relief from anger’s burden on your mind and body. Forgiveness also frees up your heart so that it can function more effectively in the present moment—and moving forward is what life is all about!

“He who cannot forgive breaks the bridge over which he himself must pass.”

“He who cannot forgive breaks the bridge over which he himself must pass.”

  • Thomas à Kempis

“Without forgiveness life is governed by… an endless cycle of resentment and retaliation.”

Without forgiveness life is governed by an endless cycle of resentment and retaliation. Forgiveness frees us from the past, from the pain it has caused us, and allows us to move forward into a more peaceful future.

Forgiveness shows strength and helps create peace

Forgiveness shows strength and helps create peace. When you don’t forgive, you hold onto anger. Anger takes up space in your heart and can eventually destroy the relationships you value most. However, when you forgive others, it frees yourself from the past and allows for a fresh start with them. Forgiveness helps break the cycle of anger and resentment that often follows an offense or hurtful action toward us by another individual or group of people.

Forgiveness is not always easy, but it is necessary. We need to learn how to forgive others, even when they don’t deserve it, because we deserve peace and happiness in our lives more than anything else. Forgiveness shows strength and helps create peace.
