More on FORGIVENESS: There are those who say… “Oh, I’ve forgiven him/her for that a long time ago.” Or, I’ve long since forgotten the SOB did this… or that….etc. Well, here’s a ‘news-flash.’ You’ve forgiven no-one.
For those who CLAIM they are of a ‘forgiving nature,’ yet…. they CONTINUE to ‘throw it in the face’ …of their offender…. Then, of course…. they’ve NOT a forgiver. If one is TRUE to forgiveness…. you will NEVER hear another word … about “it,” from them again. They’ve put ‘it’ behind them. REMEMBER: If we don’t have LOVE in our heart…. we cannot forgive. It’s impossible. Forgiveness is NOT an option… it’s an obligation.
As Luke tells us in Luke 23:34…. “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” This comes from Jesus… as He dies on the cross for ‘our sins.’ …. Yet, while, we still are sinning. For God so LOVED the world, that He gave His only begotten Son….
