Treat Yourself to a Healthy Serving of Forgiveness

Here's a great opportunity to be selfish. Treat yourself to a hefty helping of forgiveness...that is, forgive someone who has hurt you.  We often don't consider that granting forgiveness is for our sake.  Nobody ever truly deserves forgiveness.  But, neither do we.  Granting forgiveness is a great opportunity to be selfish because it is just as beneficial for the person who has been offended.  Don't harbor bitterness it will eat you alive.  
Someone once said that harboring un-forgiveness is like drinking poison and expecting the person who offended us to die.  
We treat ourselves to our favorite ice cream, or pair of shoes, or day at the spa, or the newest gadget.  How about we treat ourselves to a huge helping of forgiveness for others.  Go ahead be selfish, you deserve it!
