One weight we should not want to carry is the weight of forgiveness.

It is the attitude of the heart that abides outside the law of love. To walk in forgiveness is to walk in great spiritual freedom. Your heart is light when it does not carry a grudge, bitterness, or resentment. To forgive does not mean that you agree with the offence that someone has committed, or that you support it in anyway.

To forgive means that you choose to release the judgment you are carrying toward someone, even though that person did something that was unkind or unfair. The choice to forgive is not based on fairness or justice, but on mercy and grace. Mercy triumphs over judgment when you chose to forgive.
