Now We Know WHY He Was General

In a recent interview, General Norman Schwartzkopf was asked if he thought there was room for forgiveness toward the people who have harbored and abetted the terrorists who perpetrated the 9/11 attacks on America.
His answer was classic Schwartzkopf.
The General said,
"I believe that forgiving is God's function. Our job is to arrange the meeting."

A friend sent me this, and although I have to admit I do admire the General, and found his statement highly amusing, as a Christian I know it is necessary for us to forgive those who have trespassed against us. We cannot forgive their sin, only God can do that, but we must forgive the person, because we "All have sinned and come short of the Glory of God."
Romans 3:23

Another VERY good reason to forgive is,:
Matthew 6"15 says, "
But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses."

I have stumbled many times with the 'forgiveness' issue but have learned that when I have no forgiveness to give, I only need to ask Heavenly Father for his. He always comes through.

May He who was and is and will always be, bless your day of worship, and bring you love, forgiveness and peace.
