(Matthew 6:14-16; Luke 15)
Forgiveness. Most of us want it when we’ve screwed up. Most of us struggle to give it when someone has really hurt us. We find ourselves in this strange quandary. We crave relationships with people - and yet people sometimes hurt us deeply. What do we do with that? Well, that brings us back to forgiveness. If we want a heart that is healed of it’s pain, if we want a life cut free from our hurt, if we want fair… we have to use God’s gift to people who can’t forget. The ability to forgive!
