Forgive Us As We Forgive

Text: Matthew 6.12

“Forgive and forget” is the trope we’ve been sold over and over again about the true nature of forgiveness. Articles abound in Success magazine, Forbes, Oprah.com on the 4 ways, the 8 ways, the 12 ways to 'Forgive and Forget’. This is not forgiveness. This is forgetfulness, and it does not honor your story and how you are being formed. Forgiveness is different from forgetfulness. Forgiveness is about remembering, but in the remembering an ability to wish someone well and let them on their way.
