Those who forgive…

“Those who forgive them recognize and affirm their guilt. Yet at the same time, they lift its burden from the shoulders of the offenders.” ~  Miroslav Volf

Dr. Volf’s words in, “Free of Charge,” have both irritated and inspired me. Those few I have pasted in beside his mugshot, though, I found fitting to my current focus.

Each of us by forgiving are recognizing whatever it is needing forgiveness. So then, forgiveness requires that we somehow shoulder the wrong done to us in fashions alien to what is normal.
