“I forgive you.” While it isn’t always easy to think or say, we’ve all managed to sputter those words out at some point. The question we all have to ask ourselves though, is did those words make any difference? Did something change? Are we treating the forgiven person differently from the moments, days, weeks, or months before “I forgive you?” Or did we simply make a verbal agreement of some sort because that’s what grownups do? According to the Scriptures, it’s way more difficult than that.
