Forgiveness is one of the most misunderstood wordsin the human language. Forgiveness has been twisted and misunderstood as to how this incredible force really functions in our lives. To forgive another does not mean we must rejoin with ex-lovers, free criminals from prisons, return to old jobs, or anything else absurd. We are taught to believe that if we are to forgive someone who hurt us, it must manifest in some form of physical behavior. It is too often viewed as a weakness.
