Choosing to Forgive Unjust Treatment

CDS - 140216
Catherine De Souza

We can’t choose the treatment we receive but we can choose our response: we can choose forgiveness. We can choose forgiveness that isn’t based on the other person’s repentance, that doesn’t excuse the behaviour and that recognises forgiveness may be something we have to repeatedly choose. We can choose to cancel the debt that is owed us, knowing all this is possible with God.

No matter how big our hurt is, our God is bigger. No matter how deep our pain is, God’s love is deeper. No matter how strong the hold that unforgiveness has on us, our God is stronger. Today we can choose to forgive unjust treatment and experience true freedom.
