There are wounds that permanently disfigure us, leaving us with a constant reminder of an injury. A drunk driver disables one for life. A sexual predator robs our self-confidence and self-esteem, and we struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder and depression while the perpetrator walks away. Someone hurts our child, and our anger becomes all-encompassing, eating us alive.
Most human beings understand that forgiveness is essential to living a healthy and productive life. Yet, there are moments when forgiveness becomes a challenge. A perpetrator might be unrepentant. Or, “things happen” in the background, in board rooms behind closed doors, and we don’t even know who has hurt us. While we are left with devastating consequences, the rest of the world goes on as though nothing has happened.
Forgiveness is written for those who are struggling with forgiveness, have significant wounds, and can’t seem to find their way to healing and for Christians who are not dealing with a particular forgiveness issue, but who are striving to make forgiveness a daily spiritual practice.
