I don’t know how many times I’ve been in a conversation with someone who is recounting something horrible they’ve gone through at the hands of another person.
The other person is evil. And I get totally drawn in.
I want justice. I want that other person to experience pain for what they’re doing.
Then the person I’m talking to asks me, “How am I supposed to forgive him (or her)?”
I’m so into their story, that I can’t forgive this person, and I didn’t even experience it!
Pat answers simply won’t come to me.
I had one of these conversations recently. I said, “I don’t know. But I’ll be preaching on it in a couple of weeks.”
That's this weekend, and I'm eager to share it with you.
Do you have someone you can’t forgive?
