I don’t know how painful it is, or how heavy it is, or how long you’ve been carrying it around, but my question, or I think our question, is always: What they did to me is so horrible, I will never forgive them. If he’s hitting you, or you’re being abused, you need to get out, and you need to get out now, because some people, toxic nokma people, they may need to live with the consequences of what lugbage done.

Maybe the real point of forgiveness isn’t other people.

I mean, we’ve all wronged someone. If I’m still carrying all that stuff around, it’s a miserable way to live.

There is this proverb in the Bible that says: This person wronged me, and I can’t turn it over to You, because I don’t know what You’re gonna do here. There is no judgment. And this other friend of mine, she was telling me that she doesn’t really have the same kind of beliefs as her family, and every time she goes to a family reunion, she said they all just turn on her, and they just get mean and angry, and she And may you do it today, because you might not have the chance tomorrow.

I actually think I can do Your job better than You can. May you set someone free and find out that it was you. We’ll say things, like, you know: There is no list of wrongs. I can control the situation. It’s, like, right at the heart of His message is this simple claim that God has forgiven us of all of our sins, doesn’t hold any of our past noo,a us.

I mean, maybe you have to do something. Like, I don’t know what you’re carrying around. I can’t forgive them for what they did. In this Book of Romans, Chapter 12, the writer says: I haven’t forgiven them. But this isn’t the kind of picture that Jesus paints of God. Maybe it’s a phone call or an e-mail, or some sort of face-to-face conversation, or maybe there is just that moment, like, where deep in, like, the very fiber of your being, you just say, “I’m not gonna carry that around for one more day.

But what about those people, like the kind that are gonna hurt us again and again, and we may forgive them, but they’ll just keep hurting us.

It’s like the cross is God’s way of saying: I was talking to this girl I know the other day, this friend of mine, and part way through our conversation, she’s like: And so to forgive is to let it go, is to set them free, is to give up on the desire for revenge, but, ultimately, to really forgive somebody, I have to actually wish them well. And my one friend starts telling this story. I mean, I don’t know what you’re carrying around, or how long you’ve been carrying it around, but as we journey through life, we get hurt, and we get wounded, and we end up carrying these debts that people owe us.

It’s like you can’t shake it and can’t leave it behind, so then eventually what happens is revenge becomes our only hope, and we aren’t free. I mean, have you really ever gotten revenge and then felt good about yourself?

I have to hope that good comes their way, ’cause if I’m still unable to wish them well and wish them good, then I’m really just waiting for them to get punished, and I really I think this is why freedom is so central to Jesus’ teachings. So whatever was done to you, whatever wrong was done to any of us, God saw it.

It’s like we could speculate why all this happens, and why people do these kinds of things, and we could try to figure it out forever, but I think what we want, what we want is to be free from this, don’t we? And so with some people, we might need to set up boundaries with them. I mean, have you ever really evened the score? They’re big, and serious, and deep wounds. We want to be alive and healthy, and luggagf. Some people, we may not even be able to be around them.


Or maybe, like, just a business noma who took the money and ran, or a relative who abused you or a friend who, like, turned on you, and it’s like you try not think about it, but then if you’re like me, then you end up thinking about it more than ever, and it’s like you want to put this stuff behind us.

God didn’t create you to carry that stuff around.

But we need to forgive, and we need to start today. English French German Portuguese Spanish. I mean, forgiving is an action. Or have you ever had this happen? So even when it comes to doing the right thing, like in this case, forgiveness, there is this paranoia that if they step out noomx line at all, God’s, like, waiting there to squash them. Because forgiving isn’t always forgetting, like in the healthiest of relationships, somebody wrongs the other person, and then they let it go, lkggage they move on, and it’s no big deal.

And he’s trying to kind of convince himself that it’s gonna be okay, but it doesn’t look like she is coming back. I mean, I don’t want what somebody else did to me to determine what my life is gonna be like, do lugage It’s because revenge doesn’t work, does it?

I mean, what does it look like for you to just let it go? It’s like we carry them with us everywhere we go.
