Forgiveness is central to Christianity. We are reminded over and over to forgive others as God has forgiven us. How many times? Seventy times seven, the numerical symbol for unlimited. Forgiveness is really hard for a grudge-holder. I not only hold a grudge, I have my own recipe! Here it is:
Pull out your favourite pot. Mine is a classic, bright orange Le Creuset. First, fast fry the grudge in some hot oil, so all the juices are sealed in. Then add your choice of flavour enhancers. Gossip is a good one. Cover with rich, condensed memories to allow the grudge to simmer to perfection. Then pop the whole thing into the oven for a nice, loooooooong, slow cook. Of course, it tastes even better the next day. The flavours improve with age!
Hmm, maybe it`s time to take the fast food approach. A quick drive through, wolf the grudge down, and throw the remnants into the bin. 🙂
