About "Choosing Forgiveness"
In this challenging book, the Sandfords show that the need to 'get even' with those who hurt you - though it seems natural - is deeply harmful in the long run. They explain why forgiveness is absolutely essential for spiritual and personal growth. Sin and forgiveness are not exciting or happy issues to think about, and most people try to avoid dealing with them whenever possible.
John and Paula Sandford explain how ego and pride are involved in hurtful situations and how, in the world's eyes, it would be natural to seek revenge. But unforgiveness and sin have a way of keeping us in a constant state of chaos and trouble.
Sin isolates us from each other and from God, but forgiveness is the antidote to sin. Forgiveness is a crucial and pivotal element to spiritual and personal growth. If you want to be happy, to be healthy, and to grow in relationships with others, forgiveness is not an option; it is a necessity.
Sin and forgiveness are not exciting or happy issues to think about, and most people try to avoid dealing with them whenever possible.
