It is so easy to hold the grudges, the resentments, the self-righteous air. It is easy to believe in our unwillingness to let go that we are somehow settling the score. We need our relationship with the God of our understanding to give us the eyes to see that that behavior really is only a slow death for us and then give us the strength to let go and to know true joy and true peace. It is in the process of forgiving and letting go that we can learn more deeply what it means to love God, love our neighbors, and love ourselves.
