The Value of Forgiveness
Christians are commanded by God to forgive others, but it isn’t an easy command to follow. In fact, sometimes, it hurts to let go of the ache you’ve held onto for so long and sometimes it doesn’t feel right to open your heart again or even accept an apology.
God’s word is filled with scripture that details forgiveness. Esau forgives his brother Jacob for deceiving him out of his inheritance. A son who leaves his home to live a reckless life is welcomed home by his father with a party. There is a parable of a master who cancels the debt of his servant.
In today’s world, what’s the true value of forgiving others and why should we make it part of our character?
