Forgiveness is a precious gift of God

Everybody makes mistakes. Nobody is perfect. Very often we blame others when they do something wrong to us. We do not want forgive their mistakes.

Here is a story of a land-lord and his tenants.

One day a rich landlord had given his houses and land for rent. The landlord had to get so much money from his tenants. He called al this tenants and told them to clear up their debt immediately. A certain tenant had to pay him Rupees one lakh. He could not pay the debt as he had no money.

The landlord ordered to lock up al these rooms and put him into the jail along with his wife and children. The tenant ell up on his feet and bagged for mercy. ``Master,’’ he said, ``give me some more time and I will pay back all my debts’’. The land lord felt pity for him and had forgiven him all his debts. Now he need not pay anything at all. He was overjoyed!

But while going home, this tenant met one of his poor servants who had to pay him 100 rupees. He caught hold of this poor servant and demanded the money back at once.

The poor man begged pardon and knelt before him and said, ``Forgive and give me a few more days’ time and I will pay you back everything.’’

But he did not excuse him. He beaten him badly and tied him up on a tree. This tenant, who had received forgiveness from the landlord, could not forgive his poor servant for a small amount.

The news came to the landlord. He called the tenant at once before him and said to him, ``you an evil man I when you begged for mercy, I excused everything that you have to pay to me. Don’t you think that you too should show pity to someone else, as did to you?’’

The angry landlord ordered to torture him badly and put him into the jail.

This is the way that God will treat you if you do not forgive each other from the heart.

Forgiveness is a precious gift of God. When you forgive someone, a new relationship is created. Forgiveness brings peace of mind.

Forgiveness is the ability to pardon others whop offered you, who hurt you. Forgiveness improves our unity and togetherness.
