The 5 Best Quotes on Forgiveness + Free Printable - Coffee & Conversation









I am not a fan of QUOTES

In fact sometimes I get very annoyed at how people almost treat a quote
 as more important than the Word of God

I actually wrote a blog post about Do We Really Need This Quote?








However I've been thinking about Forgiveness this month and there are some good quotes on the topic.

I have seen quotes from so many people on Forgiveness but I prefer to only refer to or recommend ones from people who I trust as standing firm on the Word of God.

So in the list below I will quote


Not Joel Osteen   but   St. Augustine

Not Joyce Meyers   but   Corrie Ten Boom   

Not William P Young (author of the Shack)   but   C.S. Lewis





1.  Saint Augustine

"Forgiveness is the remission of sins. For it is by this that what has been lost, and was found, is saved from being lost again."



2.  John Bunyan
"No child of God sins to that degree as to make himself incapable of forgiveness."




3.  Charles Spurgeon
"I believe that as often as I transgress, God is more ready to forgive me than I am ready to offend.  "


4.  Corrie Ten Boom
"Forgiveness is an act of the will, and the will can function regardless of the temperature of the heart."

5.  C. S. Lewis


I could not decide between these two quotes so I've included them both
(I had the same problem in The 5 Best Quotes on Love too)
"I think that if God forgives us we must forgive ourselves.  Otherwise, it is almost like setting up ourselves as a higher tribunal than Him."

 

"I find that when I think I am asking God to forgive me I am often in reality.... asking Him not to forgive me but to excuse me."









and I cannot but think that C.S. Lewis is definitely speaking for us all when he said

"We all agree that forgiveness is a beautiful idea until we have to practice it."
