There is no denying that forgiving a hurt is hard. Even Wikihow.com have done an article on ‘How to Forgive’ which I found quite insightful. But what does forgiveness entail? Maybe we are getting it wrong?
Scrolling through the TV stations one evening last week I chanced upon a preacher on Family TV speaking about forgiveness. To the best of my recollection, here is what he said : “The Bible says Forgive! Forgive those who hurt you. Doesn’t say forgive them and marry them, or take them back….or hire them again. The Bible says forgive them! Period.”
If you ask me, that right there, is quite a liberating statement. What do you think?
