Forgiveness....

Friday, January 25, 2013

I can forgive, but I cannot forget, is only another way of saying, I will not forgive. Forgiveness ought to be like a cancelled note - torn in two, and burned up, so that it never can be shown against one. ~Henry Ward Beecher

Having a bit of difficulty with people who just can't give STUDENTS second/third/fourth chances... if we TEACHERS can't forgive students for bad choices and help them learn from them...how can we expect society to? (Forgiveness does not mean condone)!!

    So true. We all make mistakes and we all need to be shown mercy.

    I agree that forgiveness should be forgetting the trespass. If a person grows from the realization that they did something wrong and agrees not to repeat it.
