Herbert: the bridge of forgiveness

Sunday, February 27, 2011
    Feast of George Herbert, Priest, Poet, 1633
    [Jesus:] “And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your sins.”
    —Mark 11:25-26 (NIV)
    He who cannot forgive others breaks the bridge over which he himself must pass.
    ... Edward Herbert of Cherbury (1583-1648), The Autobiography of Edward, Lord Herbert of Cherbury, London: Walter Scott, 1888, p. 40 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, implant in me a heart that desires to forgive.
