On Forgiving


Kathy Lee Gifford ended her 30-year feud with Howard Stern.

If it’s about mending broken fences, it’s worth reading.

For 30-some years, Stern has been saying terrible things about Gifford and her family. Gifford just ignored the insults.

One day, when Gifford learned that Stern was on the same show as she was, she felt the Lord tell her to say hello to Howard. Gifford introduced herself to Stern. Stern was stunned.

Later that day, he called her and profusely apologized. He said he was working his life out.

Gifford replied that she had already forgiven him 30 years ago.

Magnanimous to a penitent.

Brings to mind our Lord who always invites us to his life.

And when we're ready to ask for forgiveness, he’s already forgiven us over 2000 years ago.
