“Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns to you, saying, ‘I repent,’ you shall forgive him.”
– Luke 17:3-4
Radical forgiveness. That is what God, in Christ, has given us, and that is what we ought to give to others. Freely we have received, freely we ought to give.
Do you struggle with forgiveness? You’re not alone; many people do. Here are three things to consider to help you move toward forgiveness.
- Retribution and vengeance are God’s. You’re never granted authority to enact revenge.
- Unforgiveness injures only the one holding it.
- Forgiveness does not necessarily restore relationship. There is no restoration without repentance.
