Seek Forgiveness and Grant Forgiveness

What is forgiveness?
Cancelling a debt; Release somebody from something; Give up the right so that we can get them back; Decision not to hold something on somebody despite what they did; Forgiveness is not a feeling; Forgiveness is not forgetting; Forgivenss is not excusing behavior; Forgivenss is not an option;

In offenses and Conflicts with others:

  • Do not build a coalition
  • Do not deflect
  • Do not delay

We forgive just like Jesus forgave us

How did Jesus forgive?

  • He gave it to me before I ever asked for it
  • He gave it to people who didn’t deserve it
  • He gave it even though we would be repeat offenders

Forgiven people forgive.
