So many people have problems with forgiving. It makes a little harder when its your parents who gave you up for adoption. Kirk Franklin spoke out about how he hated his parents for giving him up as a child, even though its normally its a decision a parent makes wanting better for their children, most children don’t understand. Well all of his life Kirk Franklin held his feelings about it to himself until he found out his father only had months to live. He was determined to find him, pray for him and forgive him. I am sure it was one of the hardest things he had to do, but he said “How can I preach and tell the world about forgiving if I dont practice what I preach” It was so touching during the reunion and Kirk expressed to his father how he felt and that he forgave him. His father is dying of cancer and Kirk put a smile on his face and gave him a kiss on his head to show his love. Do you think you could do or could have done the same??? I know I could because I was in his shoes and I did the same.
