Is it hard to truly forgive?
A lot of times we talk about not wanting to be a doormat? You do not want to be an enabler nor do you want to allow someone to walk all over you.
I struggle with this question every time I hear it. As a person deals with forgiveness, we want to put conditions on it. We want to forgive them but will avoid them or won’t allow them to get close again.
This passage was one of the few things that Jesus said while he was on the cross. He had been unjustly accused, beaten to near death, mocked, His hands and feet were nailed into the wood, and His clothes were stolen. At this point,
Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided up his clothes by casting lots. Luke 23:34 (NIV)
Do you trust that God can take care of anything? How can we forgive unconditionally? How can we trust God in EVERYTHING? Do you need to pray for someone? Do you trust God to take care of it? Are you forgiving and not being an enabler for someone to keep sinning?
