Reading the Old Testament has made me realize how important it is to write your story. Not just the good stuff, but all the details of betrayal, grief, and other actions that have taken place in your past. Many of the accounts written in Genesis, show the history of where the initial injury of the heart took place, and shows us why there are wars today. We, being a part of the future, are living with the consequences of the painful past hurt, and betrayal of many people groups. They are still lashing out for things that happened thousands of years ago! My point is, get the bottom of why you feel the way you do! Forgive, even though you weren’t offered an apology. Forgiveness helps you and those around you. Don’t hold a grudge, it takes away your peace, and does nothing to them, they can’t feel your grudge. Our lives are very short, why complicate it by living a life offended? Besides, we must forgive to be forgiven.
For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matthew 6:14-15
