Great wisdom from The Doctor: “The only way that anyone can live in peace is if they’re prepared to forgive.”
Someone needs to be first. And there are no guarantees that forgiveness will be reciprocal. But if I do not forgive, I can guarantee that I will not know peace.
So, is it worth the risk? Absolutely.
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you . . . do not be afraid.” John 14:27
btw, for those of you who are DrWho fans, the quote comes from the brilliant two-part episodes 907-908.
