Forgiveness is a gift we give to ourselves

Today's message at NewSpring was so POWERFUL.  Pastor Perry's message was so motivating and inspirational. Here are just a few of his quotes:
  • He Forgave us when we didn't deserve it.
  • Forgiven People Forgive People
  • Forgiveness isn't an option, it's an obligation
  • Unforgiveness is like drinking rat poison and expecting it to hurt the other person but it kills us
  • Forgiveness="they" don't owe me anything anymore
  • If your always telling other people about how someone hurt you, then you haven't forgiven that person.
  • Unforgiveness is like driving a car around with the emergency break up all day. 

At the end of the sermon Pastor Perry had anyone that had people that we needed to forgive to write them on a paint stick and all at the same time we snapped them.  VERY POWERFUL SOUND!!!

Listen to Pastor Perry's entire message:

  1. Kendra,
    Our priest last week also added that forgiveness is a way to live our lives in tranquility. He started out with exactly what you titled this. "Forgiveness is a gift we give to ourselves" Thank you for reiterating this for us all.
    Big hugs
