In looking for a Forgiveness Sunday post, I found this article, which is a slightly different take on forgiveness, from a business perspective – Forgiveness: A Key Tool for Business Success –Don’t look for revenge. Look for success.: https://www.inc.com/tim-askew/forgiveness-a-key-tool-for-business-success.html.
Dr. Kets de Vries advocates a “forgiveness culture” and cites the contrast between the results of Nelson Mandela in South Africa and the recently deposed Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe as a prime example of his thesis.
“When you fly over Zimbabwe you see a wasteland, when you fly over South Africa you see something very different: two leaders with very different attitudes towards forgiveness. If I ask my class which political leader do you most admire, 95% say Nelson Mandela. When you ask why, the answer is forgiveness.”
