It is useless to meet revenge with revenge: it will heal nothing. – Frodo Baggins
It’s seem so easy when we talk about forgiveness, but it’s never easy when we are the ones hurt. But we can take comfort in knowing that when God forgave us,He also took all the pain and hurt. He doesn’t offer us cheap forgiveness.
Whenever Jesus Christ extends His merciful heart to us, we know that such a heart was not a heart that remained safe in a faraway heaven, but a heart that has been pierced, a heart that is gravely wounded and that knows how it is to suffer.
Let us pray that we may know Jesus’ mercy more, that we may learn more of His passion and suffering so that we may also learn from Him how it is to forgive.
When we forgive, we stop expecting healing from the person who hurt us. We instead ask for healing from God, the only one who can bind up our wounds and make us whole again.
Confess your offences to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. – James 5:16, WEB-BE
