I need to practice forgiveness because God in his grace has forgiven me.

FORGIVENESS, PART 2
I just remembered... hearing a story of Corrie ten Boome--The Hiding Place. Years after World War II ended and the Nazi death camps were emptied out and the detainees had begun to seek some measure of healing--not forgetting--she was speaking in a church. A man approached that she immediately recognized as having been a particularly cruel camp guard and her heart was filled with hatred and rage. Then God spoke to her and said forgive him. As she said the words, she realized that in forgiving him, God had forgiven her and her heart was changed forever.
