Forgiveness Sundays January 24, 2021

To be clear, I am not perfect. I have flaws and imperfections like everyone else. I fail multiple times a day. I ask for forgiveness numerous times a day.

Found this article on Faith GatewayThe Test of Forgiveness: Corrie ten Boom: Much longer article; thought the first few paragraphs were a great start. This article is a great example of forgiveness.

Editor’s Note: Corrie ten Boom, arrested for hiding Dutch Jews from the Nazis, survived the horrors of a concentration camp to astonish the world by forgiving her tormentors. Enjoy this excerpt of 7 Women and the Secret of Their Greatness and be exhorted to forgive as Corrie did.

Healing was linked to forgiveness, Corrie wrote.

Each had something to forgive, whether it was a neighbor who had turned him in to the Nazi authorities or a vicious camp guard or a brutal soldier.

In mid-May 1945 the Allies marched into Holland, to the unspeakable joy of the Dutch people. Despite the distractions of her work, Corrie was still restless, and she desperately missed her beloved Betsie. But now she remembered Betsie’s words: that they must tell others what they had learned.
