Being a forgiving person is to possess an extremely attractive quality. Forgiveness empowers those lives it touches. On May 30, CBS News affiliate KHOU 11 News reported rain in the forecast for Houston. A refreshing summer rain will give life to all the vegetation of Houston and provide water for local wildlife. The rain will also help to keep Lake Livingston full. This will ensure that Houston residents have water as well. Forgiveness is the rain that cultivates and nourishes life in relationships. When people are often critical of themselves and live in a cold and judgmental world, they need the rain of forgiveness to water their hearts.
KHOU 11 News also reported that a man had been stabbed to death in southeast Houston on Thursday, May 29. When people hear of a stabbing that results in someone’s death the reaction is usually the same. It is negative. It is something that is repulsive. People can possess character qualities that are just as repulsive as a violent death. Unforgiveness is one of them. On the other hand, being forgiving is a warm and inviting character trait. It gives people freedom from past mistakes and it validates a strong sense of value.
Forgiveness allows people the freedom to live in the present. Past failures are not constantly brought to their attention. This allows someone to truly be themselves and savior the experience that is the present. This kind of real freedom makes anyone who is forgiving a top priority for a long lasting relationship.
Not holding a failure over someone else’s head is also attractive because it strengthens a person’s sense of value. When a person has been forgiven, it tells them that they as a person are more than just a bad choice. It tells them that past mistakes do not define who they are as a person. That their contribution and presence is much bigger than the mistakes of their past, present , or future.
Forgiveness validates self-worth and gives freedom from mistakes. Forgiveness is one of the sexiest qualities that a person can possess. It builds up those it is around, and it gives them the power to become the person that they were meant to be. If a person wants to make themselves truly attractive to other people, then being forgiving is the way.
