God's Sense Of Humor

Today's dare is one of the hardest dares in the book.  It is one of the hardest things we can do in life.  But to have a solid marriage, a good marriage, you must have this, forgiveness.  Forgiveness has to happen or a successful marriage won't.  We hold on to unforgiveness for many reasons.  We don't think the other person deserves our forgiveness, we want to punish the other person by not forgiving, or we want to hold on to them and keep them in that prison of guilt.  But the truth is, we we hold on to unforgiveness, we are the ones who are hurting the most.  We are the ones locked in that prison.  To read more, join me at Woman to Woman Ministries for Marriage Monday.
