Reckless Forgiveness

Posted by georgiannasaysjustdoyou on October 20, 2012

Every relationship experiences tension at one time or another. And if you are a justice-seeker (like I am), these moments (hours, days) of tension are tough. While I know I am not always right (gasp!), right and wrong are important for me to establish. Letting go is not easy.

You can rally witnesses, friends and family to stand by you and affirm your rightness, but in the end none of them matter. In the end, the relationship is between you and the person you are having tension with…should be easy. Right?

In one of my “moments” of tension, I remembered something my pastor said during our wedding ceremony that continues to serve me well. He told us to love one another and not to just forgive, but to forgive recklessly. I chuckled then, and feel the wisdom of that advice often. Forgive because happiness is more important than always being right…

It may not solve everything. But it has served me well.

I don’t have the answers, but I always have thoughts. Won’t you share yours?
