Forgiveness Sundays February 14, 2021

To be clear, I am not perfect. I have flaws and imperfections like everyone else. I fail multiple times a day. I ask for forgiveness numerous times a day.

I used to watch a show where the main character considered forgiveness a sign of weakness. I no longer watch the show. There were some examples in the show in which forgiveness was not considered a sign of weakness. To me, it takes a strong person to forgive someone who has done them wrong in a major way. In a few cases, I have seen a few people not forgive people for minor violations. It’s about realizing that you should forgive people. Nobody is perfect contrary to some people who disagree. There are lots of references in the Bible about forgiveness in both the Old and New Testaments.

I know it can be hard to forgive someone as some people have different some horrible things to me. I let God handle it as He knows the situation and I forgive the person. I don’t always tell the person as mentioned previously as that may encourage them to continue the behavior. I may also cut ties with the person if I believe that’s the best way to proceed. I try to avoid that unless I believe it’s the only workable solution. I rarely do this, but it occasionally happens.

    In contrast to the show I think forgiving requires strength that I don’t have; and strengths I need from Christ
