FORGIVENESS

The greater the offense against you, the harder it is to forgive, but you must.

Whatever you refuse to forgive and let go of, you carry it with you until you do.

It is similar to dragging the anchor of The Titanic tied around your neck, hurtling you down to the pits of spiritual and emotional hell.

In this ever-challenging, aggressive, narcissistic, hive-minded, cold-hearted and MEAN, MEAN world has anyone recently:

° Abused you?

° Cheated on you?

° Lied about you?

° Fired you?

° Mistreated you?

° Shamed you?

Whatever your particular hurt, the solution isn’t living in victimhood and feeding it more egotistical energy, or denying it.

You have to own the hurt, forgive the perpetrator and let it go, or you will continue to hurt yourself.

And "hurt people, hurt people."

Eminent behaviorists have diagnosed:

"That choosing not to forgive somebody, is like eating poison and expecting the other person to die."

In order to move forward, we have to "let go and let God."

And be 100% at peace with the past, leaving it forever in the rearview mirror.

FORGIVENESS = FREEDOM

If we chose not to, then we are always terribly stuck in the past, not enjoying the gift from God called THE PRESENT.

Saint Paul could have easily allowed the memory of the Christians he put to death to destroy him mentally and emotionally, robbing him of his true destiny.

But he refused to do it.

Instead, he wrote:

"Dear brothers and sisters, I am still not all that I should be, but I am bringing all my energies to bear on forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead.

I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which God is calling us up to heaven, because of what Christ Jesus did for us".

"If you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you."

Bottom line__________forgive and move on.

But also most importantly, forgive yourself.

Christ Yeshua advocated for us while horrifically agonizing on the cross:

"Father forgive them, for they do not know what they do."
