If you really do forgive someone

If you forgive someone — That is, if you really let them go, then …

1. You can’t always be dwelling on the incident.

2.  You can’t bring up the incident again and again, using it against the person you said you forgave.

3.  You can’t be talking to others about the incident — behind the person’s back that you said you forgave.  Now really…

4.  You can’t let the incident stand between you and the person you forgave, allowing it to continue to hinder your relationship.

When you truly forgive someone, you clear the way for your relationship to develop unhindered by all your memories of past wrongs.  I mean, isn’t that what God does for us when he forgives us?  Isn’t that what He is calling us to?
