I read something earlier today that really stopped me in my tracks. So, I started thinking about forgiveness.
I know that I need to forgive my 'brother' if he wrongs me. Do I need to go so far as to let him know that I have forgiven him? Would that just open me up for more hurt? Should I wait until he asks for my forgiveness before letting him know?
Maybe he wasn't even talking about me... or the incident. But what if he was?
I'm really torn here.
I do not want this person in my life - AT ALL!!! Yet, there is a part of me that thinks I should reach out to him & let him know that I have forgiven him. Then there is that other side of me that hesitates because I just don't want to open myself up to anymore hurt. If I were to reach out to him & he's not even talking about me, then what if he doesn't think he's done anything wrong?
Please keep me in prayer as I contemplate this.
