Forgive Your Brother or Sister Who Has Hurt You
Family life can be very rough. In some cases a sister or brother can let you down so much that you feel that you cannot or should not forgive them. OlyLife encourages you to give the hurt and pain up to God and to let the burden go – forgive your brother. Ask your Father in heaven to give you the peace in your heart that will enable you to say, “My sister, I was terribly hurt, but I forgive you and will put it in the past.” In forgiveness you can be wise and protect yourself from future pain by making sure that the level of trust you give going forward is earned. This can be done, without carrying the burden of an unforgiving or angry heart as you proceed with your life.
Why Should I Forgive Such Terrible Pain?
The burden of carrying around an angry or unforgiving heart is not helping you live your best spiritual life. When you ask God for strength to let the pain go and to give to your brother or sister something that they perhaps don’t deserve, God will bless you. Your heart will be lighter knowing that despite the wrong that was inflicted, you rose above it and let God help you lighten the burden on your heart. When you forgive, it is more about your heart and relationship with Christ, then it is about your sister or brother. You are following God’s words when you forgive others as you want to be forgiven. Jesus forgives us with a grace that surpasses our undeserving nature, let it be said of you that you forgave your sister or brother with a love that must have come from God. If you do this, you will be one step closer to making the most of your one and only life – That’s OlyLife!
