Why Hate When You Can Be Free

By Patrick Pierre

August 27, 2017

Offenses come to all of us. How do we handle offenses and what do we do with the pain? Hurt and pain are an indicator that something is wrong, and if not dealt with in a healthy way it will manifests itself in an unhealthy way. Forgiveness is not optional. It is a commandment and there is no limit to the times we are to forgive. To forgive is to stop requiring payment for their sin, we give up resentment and choose not to hold the sin against them. Will you live in the bondage of bitterness or the freedom of forgiveness? Forgiveness is not east but it’s right.
