It isn’t easy to forgive someone who has wronged us.

We all know that it is a challenge to forgive someone who has hurt us, but is it worth the effort?

Watching my 18-month-old great-niece, I realized forgiveness is a powerful tool for healing and growth.

Watch now for 3 reasons why the best gift at Christmas is forgiveness.

The Power of Forgiveness

When we can put ourselves in the person’s shoes that we need to forgive, it is a sign that we are becoming stronger emotionally. We are becoming more compassionate and understanding. We are heading in the right direction.

Christmas is when we often reflect on the year and consider where there might be room for growth in our relationships with others. If you’re feeling stressed out with all of the preparations or unwanted emotions this season can bring up, take some time to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas.

Is there someone you need to give the gift of forgiveness to this year?

The greatest gift is forgiveness, and it is the perfect opportunity to give up grudges, let go of resentments, and forgive one another for past wrongs. If you are feeling stressed out with all the preparations or unwanted emotions this season can bring up, it might be helpful to take some time to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas.

I pray that you experience the gift of forgiveness given to you through God’s Son, Jesus. May you enjoy a blessed Christmas filled with joy!
