Forgiveness…

So, I’m sitting here with a pint of turtle icecream, contemplating this week, themed “Forgiveness” at chapel. There have been a lot of instances in my life that I have had to deal with forgiveness, as with everybody. In the past, I have been extremely forgiving, or have had no grace at all.


On Monday, I contemplated the words “forgiveness” and “grace”. When are we forgiven? When are we given grace? Are they the same? Is all forgiveness grace, and all grace forgiveness? Grace goes to people who don’t deserve it. Does all forgiveness go to people who don’t deserve forgiveness? Can you “earn” forgiveness?


God offers forgiveness and grace to everybody, but they can only be forgiven if they repent, right? Is that the same with humans?

Do we have to tell someone we forgive them?
