We have all experienced a time when we had been wronged, hurt, betrayed, or blamed for something that was unfair. If was hard for us to forgive and it probably took us some time to get over the pain of the wounds from the aforementioned.
Forgiveness is never easy. Not from my corner of this world; especially when we have searched our heart to make sure we were not the cause of the wrong. It is not that simple, or is it? I doubt it.
Some individuals are easier to be offended, and hurt than others. Some individuals are more vindictive, and less caring than others. When you put these two together; there can be conflict that can turn into a terrible situation.
The Spiritual Answer
To be forgiven; we must forgive. This is confirmed in Mark 11:25 -
“And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any; that you Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.” KJV
Then when Peter asked the Lord; “How oft shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him, until seven times?” Jesus answered: “Until seventy times seven.” We are also reminded in The Lord’s Prayer to forgive.
God gives us answers and the answers are not always easy. If you follow Bible teachings and are a Christian; you know how important forgiveness is. Still another short scripture is: “the spirit is indeed willing but the flesh is weak.” Matthew 26:41
