We have to forgive.

Forgiveness is a hard word word for some. Forgive is a hard VERB.

I have had those moments where I thought, “I will NEVER forgive them for that.”  I have a mental gasp even typing those words!  But truly, I’ve been there.  I’ve been hurt so bad that I’ve thought those words, I’ve said those words….I’ve felt those words.

The relationships I’ve had that prompted those words were just like any other.  We all have them. It isn’t any different for me.  I have been upset with a parent, a brother, a friend…

No matter who it was, though, I know that I could never withhold something that is not kept from me.

How can I not forgive when I’ve been forgiven?

I take SOO MUCH comfort in knowing that I am forgiven.  This forgiveness is not something I had to beg or plead for either.  It was freely given to me thanks to Jesus.

How can I –EVER– not forgive?

The Bible is truth and here is what it says:

For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.  -Matthew 6:14

Even though forgiveness is HARD, we still have to do it.  We are supposed to read the Bible, meditate on it and then DO it.

We have to forgive.
