Thursday - "Give Forgiveness You Have Been Denying"
Forgiving someone who says they are sorry is something most of us can do relatively easy. But, what do you do when someone has wronged you and doesn’t say they are sorry and is unrepentant? The way I see it, we really have no choice. Either we forgive or we slowly poison our mind and heart. If we hold on to unresolved bitterness it will destroy us. Matthew 6:14-15 says for if you forgive people their wrongdoing, your heavenly Father will forgive you as well. 15 But if you don’t forgive people, your Father will not forgive your wrongdoing.
I recently read an article that gave 6 reasons to forgive people that are not sorry:
· It frees you
· It stops them from affecting the rest of your life
· It speaks volumes of your strength , character and faith
· It keeps your heart where God wants it
· It slams the door in Satan’s face
· It brings glory to God
If you choose not to forgive, you only hurt you. Forgive someone today that you’ve denied forgiveness to in the past.
