Inspiring Quotes on Forgiveness


"I can forgive, but I cannot forget, is only another way of saying, I will not forgive. Forgiveness ought to be like a cancelled note - torn in two, and burned up, so that it never can be shown against one."
- Henry Ward Beecher

"The voice of sin is loud, but the voice of forgiveness is louder."
- Dwight L. Moody

"I know for me, going back the person I've bad-mouthed or lied to is absolutely humiliating! But isn't it interesting that "humiliating" has the same root word as "humility"? Part of humility is taking responsibility for my sin and asking forgiveness even when it doesn't feel good. God wants to heal and restore your relationships, but it's not easy."
- Chip Ingram

"Forgive, forget. Bear with the faults of others as you would have them bear with yours. Be patient and understanding. Life is too short to be vengeful or malicious."
- Phillips Brooks

"When God forgives, He at once restores."
- Theodore Epp

"God pardons like a mother, who kisses the offense into everlasting forgiveness."
- Henry Ward Beecher

"Forgiveness is not that stripe which says, "I will forgive, but not forget."  It is not to bury the hatchet with the handle sticking out of the ground, so you can grasp it the minute you want it."
- Dwight L. Moody

"Forgiveness is God's command."
- Martin Luther

" 24  Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

 25  And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

 26  But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses."
- Jesus Christ, Mark 11
