Inspirational Quotes on Forgiveness

These quotes on forgiveness will show you how forgiving can benefit you and those who have wronged you.

“ 3Lord, if you kept a record of our sins,
who, O Lord, could ever survive?
 4But you offer forgiveness,
that we might learn to fear you.”  Psalms 130:3,4(NLT Bible)

“Forgive but don’t forget.  Forgive everyone who contributes to your personal crisis---especially yourself.  but you should never forget the lessons you learned in the moment of testing.”  Farrah Gray

“ Turn your wounds into wisdom.”  Oprah Winfrey

Remember that God extends his forgiveness to you no matter what you do, as long as you are remorseful.  Why?  He knows that you are only human and make mistakes. 

Knowing this should make forgiveness easier for you to incorporate into your life. 

When you make forgiveness a part of your life you benefit yourself and the person you forgive.  It helps you to free yourself of anger and resentment which can be very exhausting to your spirit.  The individual who has wronged you becomes free of the guilt that is weighing them down.  They also learn a valuable lesson on how to treat others.

You learn some valuable lessons as well.  If you are the one who made the mistake, forgiveness will help you to let go of the past and instead use it as a learning experience.  You can often overlook a lesson if you are too consumed with the past.  You also learn who can be trusted and what types of people to be cautious of.

So why no free yourself of all the anger and resentment you are holding inside. Peace will only come if you make forgiveness a part of your life.

Just think about these quotes on forgiveness and make use of this valuable act.


I can live a more peaceful life by forgiving myself and those who have wronged me.
