The Shack – Freedom in Forgiveness
Maylin Nelson/Matthew 18:21-35 NIV
GOD CALLS US TO FORGIVE OTHERS FREELY, JUST AS HE FORGAVE US. “Forgiveness does not excuse what they did, it only loosens your grip…” Forgiveness allows God to heal your hurts. When you forgive and release someone of their wrongdoing, it means that you are trusting God enough to deal with that other person better than you can. When we ask God to help us forgive, we find freedom from anger and bitterness. We are able to give and receive love the way that God created us to.
