“Peace is the evidence of a life of forgiveness.” Lysa Terkeurst
Did this quote stop you in your tracks like it did me? It makes perfect sense, I just do not always put the two together. However, if you think about it, watch people who live peaceful lives, do you ever hear them talking negatively about others? Do you hear them string out their offenses like Christmas tree lights? They make the choice to forgive and therefore live peaceful lives. They are like bright candles that draw you in and you know something is different about them. You want to keep company with them and learn what is the reason for their peace. Now we know, they forgive. Sure would make the holiday season much more enjoyable if we go ahead and forgive before we gather around tables and trees. I will go first. Join me?
