From this week’s sermon.

Forgiveness is not:

  • Minimizing or excusing an offense.
  • Subjecting yourself to continued abuse.
  • Only an emotional response.
  • Assigning blame.
  • An act of weakness.

Forgiveness is:

  • Giving up rights to retaliate.
  • Healing internal abuse.
  • A choice involving thoughts, emotions and actions.
  • Taking responsibility to remove sin, regardless of who did it.
  • An act of inner health.
