Forgiveness must be one of the biggest stumbling blocks in the life of Christians or I quess I should say some Christians. Why is it that we whom have experienced the greatest forgiveness of all, that being through the blood of our Savior Jesus Christ, can often harbor so much resentment toward others.

An infection in the body, left untreated, will eventually get into the bloodstream. Once this happens it is very hard to treat and often leads to death. Likewise, our hearts can be attacked by the nasty virus of "unforgiveness". Not treating this virus can lead to a bitterness that will consume us. While it may be deep inside us in the beginning, if left untreated it will someday surface and be obvious to others.

Pain and disappointment come to us any various ways in life. We must ask God to help us deal with our heartbreaks and let Him lead us toward forgiving those who hurt us.

There is nothing like the breath of fresh air you inhale when you find it in your heart to forgive someone. Whenever possible tell that person you forgive them and let the healing begin!

"For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father
will also forgive you" Matthew 6:14
