Forgiveness

A couple of weeks ago, one of our pastors preached on FORGIVENESS.  I walked away with many thoughts about this topic.  I find it interesting that so many people throw around the request to be forgiven as well as the words “I forgive you.”….funny how it becomes easy to SAY.  How good are we at actually DOING it?  Pastor Murr talked about how when we are presented an opportunity to forgive, we should remember how WE WERE FORGIVEN.  And we were.  And are.  Over and over.  Because we sin.  Daily.  Our Lord forgives us.  He already has.  He paid the debt for all of our sins and we are FORGIVEN.  Who are we to not forgive someone for hurting us, for lying to us, for letting us down.  How many times have you done that to Jesus?  Jesus isn’t bitter.  He doesn’t love us less or treat us differently.  He forgives and forgets it.  Try it.
