Today we have the parable of the unforgiving debtor. Everyone of us has unforgivness in our hearts and we have to strive to be rid of this spiritual cancer. Forgiveness is a decision, not an emotion. It is an act of the will. When I decide to forgive someone, the feeling of hurt shall linger for a long time before it eventually goes away. For the period of time it is there, I still have to remember that I have decided to forgive ... this time is of great spiritual growth. The decision to forgive, and stciking to that decision, helps us to grow. It also brings peace, reconciliation and most of all, as we forgive we partake in the very nature of God, because all sin is committed against God and he alone can truly forgive sins. And it makes us feel happier inside!
