There Is No Revenge So Sweet As Forgiveness

Unforgiveness Has No Foresight

Unforgiveness is the one guaranteed formula for smothering our originality. When you have been wronged, a poor memory is your best response. Never carry a grudge. When you're straining under its weight, the other guy's out producing.

Forgive your enemies - nothing annoys them more. There is no revenge so sweet as forgiveness. The only people you should try to get even with are those who have helped you.

Never is God operating in your life so strong as when you forego revenge and dare to forgive an injury. People need love most when they deserve it the least.

People need loving most when they deserve it least. Forgiveness heals; unforgiveness wounds.

You can't get ahead when you're trying to get even. Being offended is a strategy of satan's to get you out of the will of God. When we think about our offense, trouble grows; when we think about God, trouble goes.

When you don't forgive, you are ignoring its impact on your destiny. Hate is a prolonged form of suicide on your dreams. How much more grievous are the consequences of unforgiveness than the causes of it!

Forgiveness saves the expense of anger, the high cost of hatred and the waste of energy. Forgive someone every day.
