Seek no revenge and bear no grudge against your fellow countrymen.  – Lev 19:18

Reflection. A spirit of forgiveness is the first step toward joy.  “Prophetic religion through the ages has stressed the need for forgiveness and tolerance … psychology now supplements this insight by teaching us that we can achieve inner health only through forgiveness — the forgiveness not only of others but also of ourselves.”  – Joshua Liebman

Prayer. Dear Lord, I have forgiven others their faults, but I have a hard time forgiving myself for my own.  Give me the spirit of forgiveness, for myself as well as others.
