I was listening to the radio and they were taking about forgiveness and how it's so easy to hold a grudge for years. I'm sure all of us hate to admit it, but we do tend to hold on to things that should have been forgiven or even we should have asked forgiveness for something that we have done. Sometimes it's hard for some to forgive, for some reason or other maybe we've been hurt, bruised and broken so many times over years that we now just expect the worse and we can't see how that can be a problem to us. We say we forgive, but then something comes up again we have it tucked in the back of our mind just waiting to bring it out. We shouldn't be saving anything back there in our mind. It's harmful for us to say we forgive when deep down we don't. Saying you forgive someone truly, there comes this release of a weight being lifted.Why? Because it's gone, your not going to dwell on the problem, you don't need to keep taking about the problem and you can move on with your life. You can still forgive those who have done wrong even if they haven't asked for it. God see's what's in our hearts and he knows how we're feeling.
Ephesians 4:32 - And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
