Installment #3 of 3, taken from The Progressive Farmer magazine, edition October 2018. From an article titled 'Cornerstone', all thought about 'forgiveness'. Shared by Troy Severson at a recent Lake Cornelia early morning outdoor church service at Lake Cornelia:
"To err is human, to forgive divine."
~ Alexander Pope
"We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies."
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
"The weak can never forgive.
Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong."
~ Mahatma Gandhi
"I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits than strict justice."
~ Abraham Lincoln
"Inner peace can be reached only when we practice forgiveness.
Forgiveness is letting go of the past,
and is therefore the means for correcting our misperceptions."
~ Gerald G. Jampolsky
"Thank you, dear God, for this good life and forgive us if we do not love it enough.
Thank you for the rain.
And for the chance to wake up in three hours and go fishing.
I thank you for that now, because I won't feel so thankful then."
~ Garrison Keillor
