Elisabeth Elliot’s wise counsel on forgiveness comes from her experience of forgiving the people who murdered her husband and 4 of his colleagues in Ecuador. She said, “Forgiveness is a gift of grace,” and she remarkably extended that grace when she chose to forgive. She went back to Ecuador and continued to work among the same people who had taken her husband’s life. You could say she was an expert in forgiveness!
