When someone hurts us, our natural response is to strike back. Rather than let go, we cling to our rocks of resentment, our boulders of bitterness. The result? We struggle under the weight of unforgiveness.
Though we know God has called us to forgive others, we find ourselves asking:
- What if it hurts too much to forgive?
- What if the other person isn’t sorry?
- How can I let someone off the hook for doing something so wrong?
