forgiving the big things

>> April 7, 2009

Forgiveness is hard.

Sometimes it's backbreaking labor. Forgiving people who refuse to change. Forgiving those who've caused you inexpressible pain. Forgiving people who may never even know how much they've hurt you!

God talks about forgiveness. He knows it's tough! (Have you ever read God's struggle with forgiving his unrepentant people in Jeremiah 5?) But he tells us: "For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins." (Matthew 6:14-15 NIV)

Doesn't make it easy, though. And some of us find it hard to forgive the smallest little things. Others of us have to find forgiveness for huge, life-changing events.

Here's a video of a PW who is going through the journey of forgiveness right now. Last month, a stranger walked into Cindy Winters' church during the sermon, and shot her PH while he was preaching. They have two children.
