Food for ThoughtCar Accident

As result of accident she lost everything, her job, her health and her financial stability. The woman was further angry when later test showed that old lady was drunk. She went into depression and has to undergo therapy for depression. Old lady was sentenced for 16 months, but was released after three months due to poor health. Woman wanted to go in appeal against release of old lady, but she decided to forgive her. She sent a message to the Old Woman that she has forgiven her and holds no grudge for all her sufferings. For that day onward she felt light and started to work on his health, job search and other important matters.

In our daily life, we get upset and start grudging others on very patty matters, someone known to you did not pay you due attention, you are angry and looking for a chance to square it or your neighbors child playing in his lawn accidently throws ball in your lawn that has damaged one of your plants and you are boiling up and so on. But Jesus Christ teaches us to endure and forgive, Jesus Christ tells us to even forgive our enemies what to talk of family and friends.
