Plain and simple. He that hath been forgiven much also loves much. Turn your eyes inward upon your own life and you will see how easy it is to forgive others knowing how GOD have forgiven you in your own life. Truly this only come about with an knowing and walking with GOD moment by moment of which I do have with GOD in my life on the earth. Glory to GOD.
Forgiveness simply means strength and kindness. We all make mistakes and ask god for forgiveness, so why don't we give a chance to someone who does a mistake to correct his/her thoughts and pack him/her self back and try to behave differently.
1. When you release the pain in your body that was brought as a result of the act against you.
2. When you release the person from their actions.
3. When you NEVER look back on the "pain" or "the act" as a point of reference.
4. When you expect better.
see the fact in a different perspective and taking responsability for whatever happend because in some way we are responsables too...then just let that love part of yourself heal the past...any way we cant go back there, but we can fix how we feel about the past and is there how we can change and forgive.
i rarely forgive. i find it foolish and useless to forgive. if i'm wronged on purpose, i wrong you back in spades. i'm too strong minded to listen to that forgive and forget garbage.to me it means you are either afraid of what will happen if you pay the person back or that you don't have the mental strength to stand up to an adversery.
To forgive is to no longer have those angrey or hurt feelings about somthing. To forgive is not to forget and doesnt mean you have to like it. anger can hurt you emotionaly and physically to. Release anger and that is forgiving. i do beleve forgiveness does take time. and its not always easy either to not be angry or hurt about somthing that is hurting or upseting you. Everyone does it different. some pray to have the negative feelings leave , others might look at what good came out of it and focous on that. hope you find out what works for you
with a bundle full of compassion. To forgive is part of what makes us who were are. Humanity relies on it and I try not to forget that. It is not easy and I often take too long over the task, but ultimately I do forgive - always.
Thank you all for answering this question. Forgiveness for me means allowing everyone involved in the situation to be who they are. Letting go of preconceived notions of what is right and wrong. Being open to receiving the love from the other person instead of interpreting the pain.
Forgiveness is something that we can all do. Its just a matter of whether we want to do it or not.

This question was pulled as a question, so I'm submitting it in the forum instead:If, with his dying breath, Hitler had asked Jesus for forgiveness, could he have been admitted to Heaven?
