is to freely give up resentment (strong and painful bitterness) against someone and the right to get even, no matter what has been done to us. It is surrendering you own right to hurt them back or feel that someone should pay for your pain.
The deliberate willful refusal to give up your resentment and the right to get even based on the wrongful thought that somebody need to pay. Forgiveness demand payment for wrong done.
Wow, this is so eye opening, to think we are holding our self-capture, because we feel someone should pay for mistreating us. Yes it hurt to be betrayed, or mistreated but the quickest we turn out hurt and [pain over to Jesus, the healing process began. This is a perfect example of Jesus love toward us, yes, He who knew no sin because sin that we may become the righteous one in Him, that’s forgiveness.
Keep showing God loves, it’s all worth it, and God loves you.
