My Experiment: Day 11 Be quick to forgive


Day 11: Be quick to forgive

You are not hurting anyone but yourself by holding onto a grudge or not forgiving someone. It’s kind-of human nature to want justice and payback when someone hurts you, but the healthiest thing you can do is forgive someone (and quick). Is this easy? Absolutely not. I have learned that the unforgiveness only allows you to hold onto the past, and keeps your hurting, instead of letting go and moving forward.

Forgiving someone does not mean that what they did was OKAY, but we forgive because the bible calls us to forgive as we have been forgiven. It’s releasing us from the right to hurt them because they hurt us.

Journal/Thought prompt: Are you holding onto unforgiveness? Is something in the past, that you haven’t forgiven someone else for, or yourself, keeping you from moving forward?
