Unforgiveness is a heavy burden to carry. It hinders our trust in others, ourselves, and God. Oftentimes, because of our human nature, if we don’t experience forgiveness, it is difficult for us to walk in freedom. This can cause a sense of unworthiness and the need for personal justice.
Forgiveness is not condoning the other person’s actions; rather, when we do forgive, we are restoring our ability to see and biblically respond to God and His image in someone who has hurt us. In Ephesians 4:32, the apostle Paul writes, “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” When we remember that in Christ we are forgiven, we have a greater capability of forgiving others.
