My plea today is for our Lord’s sake—and for our own sakes—that we stop fuming and start forgiving. In our heads, we know forgiveness is healthy. Medical science has linked a failure to forgive with all kinds of ailments, including stress, anxiety, depression, headaches, backaches, stomach distress, diabetes, hypertension and heart problems.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. — John 3:16 The Legacy of Antioch video and audio by John Piper. © 2012 Desiring God Foundation. Website: desiringGod.org. Used by Permission.
