IV – WHAT IS FORGIVENESS

Forgiveness is not a feeling. It’s an action. It is not about expecting a feeling to act, but an attitude that we decide to take. When we forgive we must leave the event in the past. We are not pretending we have forgotten, but we are letting forgiveness draw the thorn out of the wound.

Romans 12:17

When you don’t forgive, you bring illness and evil to yourself.

Psalm 56:8

Job 11:13-19
