Forgiveness According to Chef Megan Ashley:
I came across this rant by Chef Megan Ashley and I COULDN’T AGREE MORE!! #2ThumbsUp
“You know what grinds my gears?
When people accuse you of being unforgiving because you don’t FORGET things that have happened to you as a result of other people’s actions.
The devil IS a lie!
GOD throws things into the sea of forgetfulness and doesn’t remember it when we repent. Newsflash: NONE of us are God. We forgive because we required to in order to be forgiven and stay saved. However, NOWHERE in that same passage about forgiveness does He say “Forget it too or I won’t forget what YOU did.” So PLEASE stop telling people they aren’t forgiving if they remember what happened. We forgive, we don’t forget…TRUE forgiveness is realized when you can remember the offense without the STING of how it made you feel BEFORE you forgave.
