Have you ever thought forgiving someone is very tough? Of course, people are not all the time nice to you. My face sometimes wears a mood off board when bitterness for someone sneaks into my heart! Oh that bad feeling! I always wanna get rid of that sooner and fight with the devil that brings the bitterness. Reading below truth from my daily devotional set my heart free. See, if it makes sense to you?!
And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.
People like to say, “I can forgive, but I cannot forget.” Have you heard that before? Now, in the first place, nowhere in the Bible does God tell you to forgive and then to forget. It is not in the Bible! The devil is adding something here to make the whole thing burdensome.
God only tells us to forgive because God in Christ has forgiven us a debt we cannot pay. When we do this, we do ourselves a favor because harboring bitterness and unforgiveness can sometimes destroy our health!
So just forgive and let God take care of the rest. When you really forgive, sometimes, He makes you forget. But sometimes, you still remember the incident because it was a major thing in your life. Yet, when you look back at it, the pain is no more there. The sting is gone and you are not bitter. Yes I am sweet now 🙂 Now to the recipe of the day!
