Yoruba Word Of The Week : Ìdáríjì


Ìdáríjì is the Yoruba word for forgiveness.

We have all needed Ìdáríjì at one point of our lives...from our friends, family and even especially from God.

Just as others dáríjì it is also required of us to do the same.

Remember, everybody deserves a second chance.

The noun is : Ìdáríjì // The verb is : dáríjì // A simple sentence is : Mo ti dáríjì e (I have forgiven you) and also Jesu ti dáríjì gbogbo ese mi (Jesus has forgiven all my sins)

May God help us to forgive like He forgives us!
