Forgiveness

Recent events in my life have drawn me to think a lot about forgiveness, and the amazing power it has to break destructive cycles in peoples lives. A friend of mine, Darryl Gardiner, mentioned on his blog that the Hindu have a proverb that goes something like this:
“Its an amazing moment when you let the prisoner free only to find you were the prisoner”.
What a wonderful way of capturing the power of forgiveness to bring freedom to the forgiver. No wonder Jesus was so vocal about the topic.
