YMAD Work Day -- Forgiveness by Sarah Fry

The power of forgiveness


During our workday in January we learned about forgiveness. Forgiveness not only benefits the offender but can also benefit ourselves. Without the burden of bitterness, we can change and become better leaders.  Forgiveness is the key to finding joy and satisfaction in life.

“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover the prisoner is you” -Lewis B. Smedes

In one of our activities we compared the rewards and costs of being unforgiving. I think this really helped us to realize that the costs of holding grudges far outweigh the rewards.  

Being forgiving will help us to become stronger leaders and to better serve the wonderful people in India! Our team is getting so excited for this opportunity!
