When someone wrongs us, we get mad. We are hurt and confused, often shocked and disappointed. At that point, we are faced with a decision: do we forgive them or do we stay angry? Do we let it go, or do we get even?
This is an issue that each of us deals with. And, we have to deal with it on both sides of the fence.
Understand this, as long as you have breath, you have the potential to hurt or offend someone and to need forgiveness. Also, as long as you have breath, you have the potential to be hurt or offended and need to forgive.
Unforgiveness is a poison that spreads to every area of your life.
When unforgiveness is allowed to remain in our hearts, it produces anger, hate, resentment and bitterness that will ruin our lives.
