Forgiveness; easy to say, often hard to do. Though this difficulty with forgiveness is often due to a misunderstanding of what is to occur. When you forgive someone, you are not calling the wrong, right, else there would be nothing to forgive. You are giving them a gift of forgiveness, not because they deserve it, but because they need it. Just as we Christians have been forgiven, as a grace of GOD, not because we deserve it but because it is The Father Godsí Good Pleasure to give it to us; so we in like fashion give through HIM the gift of forgiveness to others, because they need it. GOD is their Judge; HE will be just. Turn over the case to HIM. HE requires HIS saints to forgive, and so follow in HIS footsteps. Within forgiveness is an interesting principle: as you truly forgive others, it releases you from the pain and the hurt and the perpetuation of the issue in your life, to the degree you forgive, you are free. So, forgiveness is both for the offender and the offended, and GOD is honored by the willing obedience of HIS saints. How do you know when you have truly forgiven the person? One way is when you reflect on the situation again, and there is no more pain in you and no more vengeful and hateful thoughts toward the person.† This is a good indicator that you have truly forgiven. Get busy, for this is a commandment of GOD.
