“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.”—Lewis B. Smedes
How do you go about forgiving someone who has wronged you? What about forgiving someone who has wronged those you love?
Countless sermons have been preached on the importance of forgiveness and our relationship with God. Countless books and commentaries have been written about how forgiveness brings healing to one’s soul. But how do you actually rid yourself of the anger that weighs your heart down?
In this episode “Set me Free,” Todd Uebele bluntly describes a season in his life where he was burdened with unforgiveness and anger toward someone who wronged him and his family while he was stationed in Afghanistan. An insatiable thirst for revenge was consuming him. Forgiveness was so irrational at the time, and unattainable.
Listen to the podcast to discover how, with God's help, Todd was able to overcome his thirst for revenge and step into the restorative experience of forgiveness.
