fOrGiVeNeSs... unless we extend forgiveness to others, our lives may be poisoned by anger and hard feelings. past hurts can magnify as they accumulate, and once-loving relationships can become damaged almost beyond repair. forgiving someone that has hurt or offended is probably one of the hardest things to do. we all have had experiences when this has happened to us. there was a man named malcolm tent who began putting a rock in his pocket every time someone did something to anger or annoy him. the rock served to remind him of the incident and make sure he didn’t forget to stay angry at the person responsible.
