Kirk Franklin shares Powerful Message on Forgiveness as he reunites with Biological Father

Published

Gospel act Kirk Franklin recently reunited with his biological father after receiving an anonymous call. While revealing that the decision of his biological parents to give him up for adoption affected his esteem, the singer also gave a powerful message of forgiveness.

He shared on Instagram:

So…..
Two days ago, I received an anonymous call that my biological father, who I never knew, has 3-6 months to live. I’ve lived my entire life hating this man. He and my biological mother gave me up for adoption, and it left me never feeling good enough….to this very day. I took my hate for him and used it as fuel to be the best father I could be for my own. But what I did wrong, is I never took that fuel, and turn it into forgiveness….and that is wrong. Wrong for him, me, and the God I proclaim to represent. How can I preach what I don’t practice. So I flew to Houston yesterday to do that. It’s painful, it’s a process, but how disappointed I would be in myself for this man to leave this earth without being forgiven. He deserves to receive what God gives me everyday. Pray for him, and for me. God this is hard…I weep as I write.

    I can imagine the peace both parties feel. Forgiveness can be a gift to the receiver too but yes, even more, the giver!!
