As far as the East is from the West, so far does He remove our transgressions from us. We thank God that the Lord forgives us for all our sins, but sometimes we have trouble forgiving people who offend us. Forgiveness is always personal. It’s difficult to do, but it’s never optional. When someone has offended us, the temptation to not forgive is great, but the roots of unforgiveness and bitterness can grow deep in the human soul. Left alone, unforgiveness can produce bitter fruit that shows itself in angry thoughts, words, and deeds. So how do we learn to forgive? Why is offering forgiveness not excusing a sin? And how is forgiveness different from reconciliation? Stay tuned today as I interview Donna Pyle, author of Forgiveness: Received from God Extended to Others.
