Unconditional love permeates forgiveness. How? No longer are my eyes focused on the wrong. I see the person as I am, human. Who hasn't fallen short of what the Creator intended? Who hasn't been blind to their shortcomings? What human being hasn't crossed the line of hurting another? Who hasn't spoken an unkind word? Who hasn't displayed mockery in place of empathy? Who is that hasn't been humble enough to place self in another person's shoes? In all honesty, we are all guilty of some unforbidden act toward our neighbor.
...The Scribes/Pharisees brought unto Jesus a woman caught in the very act of adultery. The law of Moses commanded that she be stoned, but what do you say, Jesus? Jesus stooped and took his finger, wrote on the ground. He lifted himself and said, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her." They, convicted by their conscience, walked away from Him, one by one. John 8:7
If we require unconditional love and forgiveness, why is it hard for us to forgive others for their wrongdoings? If we are aware of our evil intentions toward others, why can't we overlook the mishaps of others, and especially for those due to no fault of their own, have a mental disorder? Jesus freed the whole world of the debt of sin through His death on the cross. Liberate self by having the spirit of forgiveness!
Forgiveness is Liberating!
