Genuine Forgiveness

Forgiveness is based on action and not emotion. We tend to live our lives with our emotions dictating our action, if you don’t believe this see how you respond the next time someone cuts you off in traffic. As difficult as it is we should allow our actions to guide our emotions. When it comes to forgiveness the deeper the hurt the harder it is to forgive the offense. However, the cross is our reminder that we need forgiven and that we need to forgive others. Jesus never told us, If you feel like forgiving…” He told Peter, When someone sins against you don’t forgive seven time but seventy-seven time…a day. Forgiveness is a command and not an option in the life of a follower of Jesus.
