Forgiveness and reconciliation

23 Jun

Thought-provoking quotes by Charles Williams on the subject of forgiveness:

It is easier often to forgive than to be forgiven; yet it is fatal to be willing to be forgiven by God and to be reluctant to be forgiven by men.

Many promising reconciliations have broken down because while both parties come prepared to forgive, neither party come prepared to be forgiven.

Charles Williams (1886-1945) was an English poet, novelist, theologian, and literary critic. He was also a member of the Inklings (other members included C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien).
