Brethren, our Christian life couldn’t continue if we didn’t have some capacity for forgiveness. We need to flex our forgiveness muscles more regularly, though – and the best way to do so is to remember how much we’ve needed others to forgive us in the past.
Even If they disrespect you, still respect them. Do not allow the actions of others to decrease your good manners. Because you represent yourself, not others. You will only begin to heal when you let go of past hurts, forgive those who have wronged you and learn to forgive yourself for your mistakes.
Remember that forgiveness is a funny thing, it warms the heart and cools the sting. So, bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. –Colossians 3:13. If we confess our wrongdoings to Him and He forgives us, shouldn’t we do the same? Not only for others, but for OURSELVES. The key is that you have to LET Him take it. He’s not going to wrestle you
We need to learn to ‘let go and LET God’ deal with it. Just imagine a life lived without forgiveness is like a prison where you are the prisoner, and forgiveness is the only key that unlocks that door of resentment and the handcuffs of hatred. It is a power that breaks the chains of bitterness and the shackles of selfishness. When you choose to forgive those who have hurt you, you take away their power. Since true forgiveness is when you can say, “Thank you for that experience. By forgiving others, it creates a channel of blessing instead of a circle of messes.
Forgiveness says to you that you are given another chance to make a new beginning. That is why I believe If self-love and forgiveness were to get married to each other, their baby would be called freedom. Brethren from today onwards If people are trying to bring you down, it usually means you are above them, forgive them Jesus also did it. Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing.”- Luke 23:34.
