Hindi mo na kailangang i-deny ito dahil marami rin ang nakaka-relate rito. Lalo na ang mga taong hirap makalimot sa sakit na dulot ng mga taong nagkasala sa kanila.
Ika nga ng karamihan, “Forgive, but never forget.”
Normal makaramdam ng galit kung ikaw ay nasaktan, niloko, iniwan, or tinraydor. Ang iba nga sa sobrang galit at sakit na nararamdaman nila, gusto nilang maghiganti.
This may feel natural, but the Bible encourages us to forgive.

6. “Our God, no one is like you. We are all that is left of your chosen people, and you freely forgive our sin and guilt. You don’t stay angry forever; you’re glad to have pity and pleased to be merciful. You will trample on our sins and throw them in the sea” (Micah 7:18-19, CEV).

9. “But if we confess our sins to God, he can always be trusted to forgive us and take our sins away” (1 John 1:9, CEV).
Jesus Gives Us the Perfect Example of Forgiveness
10. “For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins” (Matthew 6:14-15, NIV).
11. “Peter came up to the Lord and asked, ‘How many times should I forgive someone who does something wrong to me? Is seven times enough?’ Jesus answered: ‘Not just 7 times, but 77 times!’” (Matthew 18:21-22, CEV).
12. “Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the man, ‘Young man, your sins are forgiven’” (Luke 5:20, NLT).
13. “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven” (Luke 6:37, CSB).
14. “But Jesus was saying, ‘Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.’ And they cast lots, dividing His garments among themselves” (Luke 23:34, NASB).
Verses on Why We Should Forgive Others
15. “This, then, is how you should pray: “’Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’ For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins” (Matthew 6:9-15, NIV).
16. “But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too” (Mark 11:25, NLT).
17. “So I tell you that all her sins are forgiven, and that is why she has shown great love. But anyone who has been forgiven for only a little will show only a little love” (Luke 7:47, CEV).
18. “Stop being bitter and angry and mad at others. Don’t yell at one another or curse each other or ever be rude. Instead, be kind and merciful, and forgive others, just as God forgave you because of Christ” (Ephesians 4:31-32, CEV).
19. “Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others” (Colossians 3:13, NLT).
We know that it’s hard to forgive especially those people who have hurt you, but were not regretful. But we’re hoping that you’ll find it in your heart to release forgiveness, for your sake and for God’s pleasure.
