The power to forget…

I think at least one of the elements of this quote is that Saint Basil is saying that in order for us to forgive others (one of the primary callings and obligations upon Christians) is only possible if we are (in a sense) able to forget the wrongs they have done against us.

We must remember the good in others, and do our best to forget the rest…

One thought on “The power to forget…

  1. “… but one thing I do, forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

    – Saint Paul
    Philippians 3
