12 Lies about Forgiveness #ForgivenessFriday

July 5, 2013

lies

I can’t forgive because . . .  

. . . they need to pay. Forgiveness is not forsaking justice.

. . . I don’t feel like forgiving. Forgiveness is not a feeling.

. . . I don’t trust them. Forgiveness is not trust.

. . . that would soften the seriousness of their offense. Forgiveness is not mitigating.

. . . they are still hurting me. Forgiveness is not permission.

. . . they will never learn. Forgiveness is not enabling.

. . . they haven’t apologized. Forgiveness is not waiting for an apology.

. . . that would be weakness. Forgiveness is not weakness.

. . . I can’t forget. Forgiveness is not forgetting.

. . . I still hurt. Forgiveness is not dying emotionally.

. . . I’m still angry even after praying to forgive. Forgiveness is not a one-time prayer.

. . . we can’t have a relationship again. Forgiveness is not reconciliation.

Which lie has been holding you back?
