what would you do if someone hurt you? what would you say if someone will talk behind your back? what if that someone is close to you or the worst, your love of your life?
in my life, i’ve encountered many kinds of people. some are true and some are not. and yes, that’s the truth. but whether we like it or not, we have to bear in mind that there is this so-called responsibility or perhaps consequence upon entering into a relationship or connection with other people. others call it “attachment.”
with this, expect to get hurt… or expect that sometimes they don’t give you what you deserve. that is the rule of the world.
and because of this, others choose to be unattached.
one thing i learned from this is that, though others may hurt you, though they may talk behind your back, learn to accept and forgive them, just as what Jesus has done for us.
it may not easy at first, of course time heals, but at least on your/my end there is no burden already.
afterall, forgiving and accepting, according to Robert Muller, is the highest, most beautiful form of love.
if we will learn how to forgive, others may learn it from us too. isn’t that a good feeling? let us learn how to say…
Lewis Smedes, in his book The Art of Forgiving, said:
God invented forgiving as a remedy for a past that not even he could change and not even he could forget. His way of forgiving is the model of our forgiving.
forgiving is not about for others, but for ourselves, that we may grow and mature in our own ways.
in this season of holiness for the Lord, let us remember how He died and paid for our sins, for us to be save from our own unrighteousness.
let us be FORGIVING. have a meaningful holyweek! Godbless everyone!
