If you struggle to forgive

Pray for faith to forgive. Here’s why:

In the final analysis, forgiveness is an act of faith. By forgiving another, I am trusting that God is a better justice-maker than I am. By forgiving, I release my own right to get even and leave all issues of fairness for God to work out.*

Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “it is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord (Romans 12:19).

*Philip Yancey, What’s So Amazing About Grace?
