I’m sure this has been discussed before but what is forgiveness? Is forgiveness forgiving someone for something unforgivable even though they are not repenting? Or does forgiveness mean that you leave it alone and you move on in your life. And maybe you allow God to take care of it, ie Gid says, “Vengeance is Mine.” I still don’t understand what forgiveness is. I know someone who was cheated in marriage very badly and the family is devastated. She is still grieving, but much better than before. The person has the nerve to go to her relatives and say he is sorry and the stupid relatives believes him (relative and revolting sounds similar, no?) He is only sorry he got caught, is living hand-to-mouth, but refuses to leave the country because he can get food stamps. And even if he was truly sorry she rather be lonely than take him back. My friend is trying the prayer, “Lord forgive me if my trespasses, as I forgive those who trespass upon me” This is hard prayer. Can you tell me what forgiveness means to you. How are you able to “forgive” and unforgivable person, ie abusive husband, in laws who made you suffer. Or maybe it never gets resolved and you have a hole in yiu4 heart that you fill with flowers ir coal. Ladies and gents, plz share your experiences.
