There was a time I believed the line, "Time heals all wounds." But I am re-evaluating those words. It should read, "when the wound has been cleaned and antibiotics applied, then the wound will heal." If the wound is left as is, the bacteria will multiply and infection will set in. Also, whatever instrument was used to inflict the wound must be studied. The instrument was contaminated and whatever was on it, got into the wound.
I am applying this to relationships. When a person has been wounded, help is needed to restore that person back to good health. In most cases words are the instruments people use to inflict pain. The person causing the pain must ask for forgiveness while the wounded person decides he/she will forgive or not. Forgiveness is really the antibiotic that must be applied. If forgiveness is not applied, the wounded individual will be opened to more wounding as time goes on. Like an infection that spreads, not forgiving will have a longer, more lasting effect than the wound itself.
Is there a wound you are trying to heal from? Have you applied the ointment of forgiveness? Try it and then see if "time does heal the wound more quickly."
