A Quote on Forgiveness

"Forgiveness is the key which unlocks the door of resentment and the handcuffs of hatred.

It breaks the chains of bitterness and the shackles of selfishness.

The forgiveness of Jesus not only takes away our sin,
it makes them as if they had never been."

Corrie Ten Boom from the book "Tramp for the Lord" 1974
