Can you actually forgive another person’s sin against you, as Christ forgave the world through His sacrifice?
We hold a strong resistance to something we desire from those we care about. Yet, when others cross your path, you and I have a hard time forgiving.
Why can’t we just let it go?
We hold people hostage but would be angry if they did us the same way. Let His people go, so that you might be free within yourself.
When you and I do not forgive, we miss having the Lord’s forgiveness for ourselves. God forgave everything that you have done to Him and gave you another chance to get it right before Him.
Why is it so hard to let a bag of dirt off the hook?
Think about it. If you went to the hardware store and picked up a bag of clean dirt, and carry it with you to your place and then sit it on the front porch and never give it a chance to be used properly. How can you be upset with that bag of dirt, if you didn’t give it an opportunity to work through the system enough to produce what you needed?
I know that is frivolous and petty, but the point is, that is what it ends up being after all of that, just a useless situation that cannot be fixed even if they apologize to you for what they did.
Be like God and drop it and you’ll be happier with the results.
Make the right move and forgive before you end up paying for it later as we all stand before our maker.
I don’t want the Lord to send me to the Lake house in the middle of the pits of fire, just because I am not able to let something go.
It’s your move ……
