THE HEALING POWER OF FORGIVENESS
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:32
ONE OF the most diffi cult things in life is to forgive a person who has purposely hurt us. But as we move into a new year, let us remember that forgiveness allows us to move on and be free. Second Corinthians 2:7 says, “You ought rather to forgive and comfort [one who causes you grief], lest perhaps such a one be swallowed up with too much sorrow.”
So let us embrace the freedom of forgiveness in this new year. God has forgiven us so much, and we are called to do the same for those who have hurt us. God sets the example: in 1 John 1:9 we’re told very clearly that if we confess our sins we’ll be cleansed of all unrighteousness. God is more than happy to meet us where we are.
But in the Bible, we read about what unforgiveness can do. There once was a servant who owed a large amount of money to his master (Matt. 18:21-35). He pleaded with his master to cancel the debt. Graciously, his master did, and the servant went out rejoicing. A little later, a man who owed the servant a small amount of money came to him begging for mercy, but the servant refused. When the master heard of this, he raged, “You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you begged me. Should you not also have had compassion on your fellow servant, just as I had pity on you?” The servant was condemned to repay the whole debt (vv. 32-33). With consequences like these, it’s no wonder that forgiveness often benefits us more than the one forgiven.
