Don’t ever think you must invite your enemy over for dinner. One can forgive the person without having to become buddies. I learned that lesson many years ago when I was having a very difficult time forgiving someone. The intensity of my anger was poisoning me, and I felt sick all the time. Then a friend of mine, who is loving and Christian in her kindness, told me I didn't have to invite this person over for dinner or ever see this person again. I just had to hand over the anger to God and find peace in my heart. I thought about this for several days and then I let go. I have never looked back. I am so thankful to this individual who taught me a very important lesson. I had been raised to believe that forgiving meant I had to allow this person into my life. When my friend mentioned that one can forgive but not invite, I felt such relief as though a huge weight had been lifted. Now, I find it easy to forgive, for who am I to judge. I leave judgment to God and I brush the dirt off my sandal and move on.
