Forgiveness Questions – Help

I want to ask you some questions and I hope you will repsond. I have been thinking about forgiveness…

I hear the term thrown around – especially in church or religious circles. Oprah and othere social gurus talk about it a lot. It’s supposed to be a key to unlocking your past, your pent up emotions, releasing your shame…

When do you forgive?

What do you forgive? Does every hurt require forgiveness?

Are there levels of forgiveness?

Is there ever an “easy” forgiveness? If not then is forgiveness always a struggle?

What is the difference between “I’m sorry” and “Please forgive me”? Is it the depth of the infraction?

Can you share with me a time when you asked someone for forgiveness? Or had to forgive someone who hurt you? Was one easier than the other?

Is it easier to do if you are a Christian? What about if you are Muslim? Or Hindu? Or Buddhist?

What are signs of unforgiveness?

I hope you will enter the conversation…
