Forgive and forget? I never used to understand this. If you have been slighted, if someone harms you, why would you ever want to just forgive? It was not until just a few short years ago
holding a grudge bitter forgiving forgiveness not weak sets free
a real apology requires forgiveness trust…
It's so easy to be vengeful and bitter but to give in to bitterness and vengeance is an easy pathway to the enemy. Choose to forgive those who've hurt you.
Forgiveness doesn’t excuse their behavior. Forgiveness prevents their behavior from destroying your heart.
One of the most courageous decisions you'll ever make is to finally let go of what is hurting your heart and soul.
