Quote Challenge, Day 2

Today’s quote is from a devotional reading I just enjoyed this morning from Corrie ten Boom. 

You never so touch the ocean of God’s love as when you forgive and love your enemies. 

Corrie ten Boom

It’s hard to forgive when you’ve really been wronged, but I can guarantee you that it’s the only true path to peace. Recently I read an article by Rick Warren about forgiveness because I wanted to understand more about what it actually means. The thought that stayed with me the longest is that forgiveness isn’t saying what happened was ok or didn’t actually hurt you, but it’s giving up your right to exact vengeance because God will make all things right. We don’t need to do His job for Him, but we must leave justice to Him. 

I really don’t have the gist of the tagging thing, so if you see this and want to take on the challenge, consider yourself tagged! Have a lovely day!
