Write a letter to the person (or people) you have been harboring resentment toward. Explain exactly why. Tell them you have forgiven them entirely.
Then, DESTROY the letter - DON'T SEND IT.

"But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?" (Matthew 5:44-47)

Well, this was one Faith WOD I did NOT want to do, but I know the concept of forgiveness is something that has been tugging on my heart recently.ReplyDelete
For way too long I have been holding in fear and resentment towards people in my past and I needed to let it go. When I read this part it really hit me:
"If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that?"
Thank you for this.
