Verse of the Day 8-13-22

Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. Colossians 3:13

Forgiveness does not mean approving a sin or excusing evil. Rather, forgiveness means releasing people from obligations incurred by their wrongs against you. This may come in the from of unilateral forgiveness-that is, forgiving someone who has not asked for forgiveness. Or it may come in the form of transactional forgiveness, which involves the confession of the offender, his/her repentance and reconciliation.

What makes forgiveness possible is recognizing that “the Lord has forgiven you.” If you refuse to forgive, you have blocked God’s operation in your life. But when you forgive, you no longer “grieve” the Holy Spirit, and you imitate the one who shows you mercy.
