Do I really have to forgive others?
The answer is YES!!!
Having to forgive others for bringing harm or hurt to you, can be one of the hardest things in life for you to do.
It is not easy to detach yourself from your feelings and emotions when others have done something to wrong or hurt you.
When trying to get pass those feelings of betrayal, we can’t allow our emotions to get the best of us and force us to retaliate against those who have wronged or hurt us.
***It is during those times of hurt, betrayal and anger that we must exercise forgiveness.
This is the time when we have to rely on the power of forgiveness.
It is through the act of forgiving others; that we as true Christians will be forgiven by God for the sins that we have committed.
This is shown in Matthew 6:15 (AMP) But if you do not forgive others [nurturing your hurt and anger with the result that it interferes with your relationship with God], then your Father will not forgive your trespasses.].
So in essence, in order to be forgiven by God for our sins, we must remember that we have to make sure that as true Christians; we have let go of: hate, resentment, hurt and anger toward those who have wronged us, and forgive them for any of the things that they have done against us or to us.
God Bless you all,
Enjoy the rest of your week!
