But maybe it was somebody that you really loved, or that you still love, and they left you. We want to be alive and healthy, and whole. Because when I forgive somebody, and I set them free, it’s like I’m really setting myself free. It’s like the cross is God’s way of saying: It’s like we carry them with us everywhere we go.
Or have you ever had this happen? I can’t forgive them for what they did. Let God take care of it.
So when I forgive somebody, I am giving them what God has given to me. I mean, forgiving is an action. But we need to forgive, and we need to start today. Because forgiving isn’t always forgetting, like in the healthiest of relationships, somebody wrongs the other person, and then they let it go, and they move on, and it’s no big deal.
So whatever was done to you, whatever wrong was done to any of us, God saw it. They’re big, noomaa serious, and deep wounds.
So may you forgive as you’ve been forgiven. There is no judgment. Free from feeling like you’re the judge of the world.
So even when it comes to doing the right thing, like in this case, forgiveness, there is this paranoia that if they step out of line at all, God’s, like, waiting there to squash them. May you give to others what’s been given to you.

But think about revenge. I think this is why freedom is so central to Jesus’ teachings. And may you do it luggave, because you might not have the chance tomorrow. And so to forgive is to let it go, is to set them free, is to give up on the desire for revenge, but, ultimately, to really forgive somebody, I have to actually wish ,uggage well.
It’s something you do. It’s like you can’t shake it and can’t leave it behind, so then eventually what happens is revenge becomes our only hope, and we aren’t free.

It’s, like, right at the heart of His message is this simple claim that God has forgiven us of all of our sins, doesn’t hold any of our past against us. But what about those people, like the kind that are gonna hurt us again and again, and we may forgive them, but they’ll just keep hurting us.
