How to Forgive the Unforgivable

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?
