Credo #80: Walk in forgiveness

Posted: November 5, 2009 in Credo, For brothers

It should not require stating, but it does: Walking in forgiveness does not mean being in agreement with your accuser. It does not mean that you are obliged to be a foot-cleaning mat for someone. It does not mean that you are obliged to not react when you are wronged — though I think you are wise to choose the time, place, and manner of your response when you are wronged. It means just what it means: That you walk in forgiveness.

    forgiveness does not mean you trust the person who has broken trust with you.

  2. pausebetween2notes says:

    it also means a minute by minute trust in God to take up your cause….you die to your right to exact punishment/payment to what was wronged you and you look at the cross that remind you God died for you and for the person who has hurt you…it is tough, difficult…and some days, you would rather choose to remain angry than forgive…best to walk the path of forgiveness with God.
