Lauren and Jon continue our conversation this Lent, today discussing the challenges of “fasting from” bitterness, and “feasting on” forgiveness. We ask why it is so natural and easy to remain angry, embittered and out of relationship…and so difficult to forgive those who have offended or hurt us. Why do we hold onto destructive feelings rather than let them go, and allow nourishing feelings to take their place? Consider who is in most need of forgiveness in your own life (maybe it’s even you!), and look at how you can begin the process (often a long one) of releasing the bitterness. Then get a glimpse of the delicious fruit that comes from forgiveness, and begin to feast on it.
