CONTRADICTION

All poisonous thoughts of revenge are mushrooming in my head.

When I confessed this to my pastor, he gave a lecture on forgiveness and peace of my own mind. He explained further that If one is always burning with hatred and vengeance, it is definitely harmful for self, mentally and physically.

‘But I beg to defer’, I argue, ‘I think unconditional forgiveness tantamount to Acceptance of wrong doings. How can my soul be peaceful if I surrender meekly?

NOTHING CAN BE MORE PATHETIC and DISTURBING to me if I have to REPENT throughout my life having FORGIVEN an UNDESERVING ONE.

 

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing thought, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  2. I think forgiveness is always there as Jesus said to forgive up to 77 times. But wrong deeds are not something everyone should ignore. Matthew 18:15 says if your brother sins against you, show him his fault, just between you two, if he listens you have won him over but if he doesn’t listen – call an elder or someone to help. That’s why your soul doesn’t surrender meekly because the spirit is telling you to stand on for what is right.

    That’s just my understanding about your post. I hope you don’t mind me saying this. A thought – provoking post indeed.

  4. I am not sure about your take on the issue.If one doesn’t forgive and carries the grudge,it corrodes the mind like an acid.Though difficult in some cases of extreme hurt,in most cases of minor nature forgiving is easy.Forgiving does not make the wrong right but only endeavours to remove the pain from the mind.

    • When I wrote this i had Nirbhays’s case in my mind. That type of criminals I can never forgive. I agree with you that in minor cases one can always forgive. Thanks for reading and commenting.

  5. As a wound needs time to heal, so forgiving a wrong needs time, but the process of forgiving is cathartic; it helps the sinner, and the one sinned against. Nursing hatred, or a sense of grievance can be self destructive; ultimately destroying the victim rather than the perpetrator. I speak from experience and with hindsight, but no one could give me either, and in any case I wouldn’t have believed them. Time has worked its magic, making me older and wiser.

    • Thanks for sharing your views. I agree with you but I was talking from the point of view of a mother whose daughter was not only raped but killed brutally by taking out her intestine with hand by the rapist. How can she forgive and if you hear how the culprit justified her misdeed . I don’t think anyone can forgive him and his four friends. We can forgive in minor crimes but these people if left unpunished will do more harm to society as they do not repent.
