Lighten your load

Forgiveness is one of those things that’s easier said than done. Even after we’ve reluctantly uttered the words, “OK, you’re forgiven,” who among us hasn’t secretly carried a grudge against our offender? Judging by the number of lawsuits filed each year, we aren’t so good at forgiving our debtors or trespassers. But does “forgiving from the heart,” as we are called to do, mean we have to become everyone’s favorite doormat? Hardly. It simply means that we accept the fact that others are as human and prone to folly as are we. Lent is the perfect season to practice forgiving from the heart. Give it a try—you’ll feel lighter when you no longer have to carry that grudge around.

TODAY'S READINGS: Daniel 3:25, 34-43; Matthew 18:21-35 (238). “Should you not have had pity on your fellow servant, as I had pity on you?”

The old farmer from the countryside who was visiting a big city for the first time with his son, stood speechless before the elevator of a big hotel, watching in wonder, as an old woman got into the elevator and, within minutes, a beautiful young woman came out. He called out to his son who was registering at the reception. “Son, come on here, put your mother into that miracle machine immediately. It will transform her into a beautiful young lady.”
