Offenses will come. We live in a world of diversity; different origins, customs, traditions and values. In a world that exemplifies culture will have their share of offenses.

Acknowledging when you are wrong or have said something wrong takes a mature person, a person of great understanding.  This is very important because we live in a society that thrives from news, opinions and comments. This is why you should think before you speak.

In the world of information technology, your actions and speech is captured to be place on display for decision, remarks, comments and sometimes judgment. Now, you may be the type of person that don’t care what others think, but, their opinions, comments and viewpoints can sometimes effect you directly, especially financially. Your brand image and reputation could be on the line. You really should keep this in mind.

There used to be a time in our society where disruptive comments and actions were permitted, especially if you were of a certain persuasion or social economic status. Today, your job, reputation and social status could be placed in jeopardy by your inappropriate comments or actions.

You may even think it’s not fair, but, sometimes this kind of system could work to the advantage of a better more peaceful work-place and society. Adults will begin to give accountability, responsibility and consideration for their mis-conduct, where they sometimes may have felt they did not have to. They may even begin to grow and develop in certain areas of their character, the area of acceptance, kindness and esteem for others. Now that’s a good thing.

More importantly, we as a people and society must learn to forgive.  Why? We are an imperfect, growing, learning people and nation. It’s necessary for our growth, progression and existence. Forgiveness is very important because no one is perfect. No one is absent from fault. The ability to recognize this will cause individuals to be more aware of their own flaws and maybe spend more time cleaning up their bad habits, attitudes and character and will be looking for leniency and another opportunity to make right when they have done wrong.  I call this the boomerang effect.

So remember, forgiveness is a choice not a feeling. Time will heal but forgiveness is needed for the healing and redemption of a people and a nation.

I enjoyed reading this post. I know that forgiveness is important and something that should be done, but it is hard sometimes! I like your idea that forgiveness is a choice. It is something we should decide to do and feeling has nothing to do with it. Thanks for the kind reminder.
