Forgiveness: Miss Havisham

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: There’s a vivid picture of unforgiveness in Charles Dickens’ novel Great Expectations. He writes about Miss Havisham whose fiancé ran away on the day they were to be married.

For decades, Miss Havisham remained in her wedding dress and veil, letting them turn to rags. She pulled heavy drapes across the windows and refused any sunlight. Instead of cleaning up her wedding cake, she let it decay and get eaten by mice.

She said, “The mice have gnawed at it, and sharper teeth than teeth of mice have gnawed at me.”

Maybe you know what those teeth are like—the sharp edges of bitterness and unforgiveness eating at joy and eroding away peace.

I want to tell you, there’s life and health outside the dark, musty walls of hurt and bitterness. You can find freedom today by choosing to forgive those who have wronged you.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
