Matthew 6:14-15 says” For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
Your hurt your injured your brain just realized you are hurt what do you do next. Most of us first thing we want to do it retaliate, speak negatively back to them hurt them with our words. What you do at that exact moment will determine your outcome in life.
Will you get healing or will you sit out and be stricken with poison in your body? Normally the first thing we do when we are hurt is go into plan of an attack, our body defenses immediately prepare for an attack. Your wounded on the field and you are in need of physical medical care it’s your choice as to what you want for your injury.
Many of us know that it’s always best to forgive then to seek revenge or justice for ourselves. The reason many don’t want to forgive at that moment is that we think that forgiveness gives that person permission or that we excuse what they have done, and so we know in our heart that what they done was wrong we feel they should be held accountable for what they’ve done. Remember forgiveness never excuses or gives a person permission for anything, what forgiveness does is sets you free and that you release that person or persons into God’s hands.
