This part of forgiveness has been on my heart lately.
When you forgive someone you don’t just forgive, you forget too. Because if you have this constant cloud hanging over you remembering everything that this person has done, you’ll never truly forgive that person. If you always feel like that person owes you a debt for your forgiveness, you’re not going to actually forgive them.
Love and forgiveness require having a short term memory and temporary blindness at times.

One reply on “Forgiveness – Day 65”
Christians live in the present and look to the future. We don't look and burden the past.
"Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors." the year of jubilee. whee!
