Years After Adoption, Kirk Franklin Forgives Dad...

Indeed, God’s ways are not ours. So hard to forgive in a situation like this. Gospel singer, Kirk Franklin has forgiven his dad who put him up for adoption. He got an anonymous call that his father has only few months to live and so he wants to forgive him and also exalt the name of the God he preaches. Kirk took to instagram posting the above photo and wrote;

''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 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.''
