God showed me how crucial forgiveness was before I had even met my wife. I had many people hurt and abuse me growing up, almost all of them, people who should have protected me. At 18 years old I found myself finally free from those abusive relationships and situations but in reality, I wasn’t free at all. It wasn’t til I forgave that I finally found freedom.
Forgiveness is saying they don’t have to pay me for what they have done. It was truly believing that they didn’t owe me. I had to give up my desire to see them suffer for how they hurt me. If God had truly forgiven me for my sins, then what right did I have to hold un-forgiveness over anyone else?
