How Many Times Should You Forgive Your Brother?
I am never going to speak to you again. What you said hurt me. I will never forgive you. These statements are from a person who has been hurt. When someone you care about hurts you, you can do one of two things, hold on to the hurt or forgive and move forward.
Although people hurt us, we must forgive them. Forgive means to give up resentment, grunginess, and hatefulness. We must be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God through Christ forgave you.
If we do not forgive others, how do you expect God to forgive you? How do you expect to move forward?
Benefits of forgiving:
- Forgiveness is healing
- Forgiveness is a choice
- Forgiveness is freedom
The Bible says, “Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven,” (Matthew 18:21-22).
