Dennis Okari’s forgiveness Message sparks wild reaction

Okari's message has touched many hence over whelming reactions on his social media

Okari has left Kenyans talking after publishing a forgiveness message on his social media account stating how no human being is perfect, which is true.

According to Okari human instinct are not trained on how to forgive those who wrong us.

“Our natural human instinct does not know how to forgive those who wrong us. Forgiveness is a divine attitude not a mental act. We are not trained to forgive. No school can teach you that, no lecturer can impart that as knowledge, no instructor can coach you. They can only show you the way or explain what it is and what it does but it has to come from your heart through true confession.” Advised Dennis Okari.

He added that when forgiveness is reduced to an act, it confines people to look for excuses not to forgive.

“When forgiveness is reduced to an act, it confines us to looking for excuses not to forgive. You will always find a reason not to forgive. Unforgiveness and bitterness have a relationship. A toxic courtship that brings forth children called Rage, Anger, Resentment, Depression, Contempt, Anxiety, Doubt, Envy, Frustration, Hatred, Fear and many other kids”

Okari’s message sparked a wild reaction in the comment section with lots of encouraging words to the journalist.

No one is perfect. It sounds cliché but it is true. However, we all strive towards perfection. The road called life has so many bumps, trenches, rough roads and highways. We make mistakes along the way, we meet people who wrong us and we also wrong them.

Our natural human instinct does not know how to forgive those who wrong us. Forgiveness is a divine attitude not a mental act. We are not trained to forgive. No school can teach you that, no lecturer can impart that as knowledge, no instructor can coach you. They can only show you the way or explain what it is and what it does but it has to come from your heart through true confession.

When forgiveness is reduced to an act, it confines us to looking for excuses not to forgive. You will always find a reason not to forgive. Unforgiveness and bitterness have a relationship. A toxic courtship that brings forth children called Rage, Anger, Resentment, Depression, Contempt, Anxiety, Doubt, Envy, Frustration, Hatred, Fear and many other kids.

The tragedy of living with unforgiveness is that it enslaves us.

Your heart is surrounded by a dark cloud.Your eyes are covered with dark smoke.Your mind is still dwelling in the past.You are present in the body but your inner self is locked up somewhere.

There is no sin that is so great that Jesus can’t forgive. The same way He forgave us, in the same measure let’s learn to forgive.
