So watch yourselves! “If another believer sins, rebuke that person; then if there is repentance, forgive. Even if that person wrongs you seven times a day and each time turns again and asks forgiveness, you must forgive.”
Man, are these verses convicting. Have you ever felt wronged or betrayed? I know I have, and when it’s by people you really care about, it can tear you up inside. The worse thing is to hold a grudge not fully knowing if the other person realizes how deeply they’ve hurt you. Forgiveness is the key! Jesus instructs us to forgive. It not only frees the other person, but it releases you from the heavy burden non-forgiveness brings. Forgiveness is part of growing in your faith, pray for the ability to forgive.
