Have you been hurt and you feel like you can’t forgive again? Have you trusted and you were betrayed and you feel like it’s over?
What is forgiveness?
Forgiveness is choosing not to hold an offense against someone.
Forgiveness is choosing not to dwell on the offense or continue to rehearse it in your thoughts.
Forgiveness is choosing not to keep a record (or keep score).
One important thing to note in life is that the most realistic thing in life is that people will always offend you, people will always get you angry, but you must learn to let it go.
Jesus, our practical example passed through criticism. He was hurt by those He trusted but forgave them. Even at the point of death, He still prayed for them.
Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.
For you to also be forgiven by God, you must always learn to forgive and let go.
When you forgive, you will also be forgiven.
” And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.”
Another important thing is not to expect much from people.
Human beings cannot be predicted, it’s just the nature.
