Forgive is a word we hear often and we understand what it means. But forgiving someone isn’t always an easy thing to do. Especially if this was someone that we trusted so much.
It’s easier to forgive when what the person did to us didn’t affect us in anyway. For instance, if someone steps on your foot or bumps into you and says sorry, you immediately smile and say it’s okay.
This is because what they did to you is easy for you to overlook and forgive.
But what happens when what they did negatively affected your life? What happens when their actions caused you to lose something? What happens when what they did hurt you so bad?
It becomes hard to forgive. So you hold on to the hurt. You hold on to the pain. And sometimes, you even begin to think of how you can make them feel your pain too.
But as a Christian, you should try to forgive no matter what. Forgive anyone who offends you. No matter how bad they hurt you or how many times they repeatedly cause you pain, you must forgive them. Because that is what the God we serve expects of us.
And you should also remember that vengeance is of the Lord (Romans 12:19)
