It’s Good for Us
Giesbrecht continues: “We give God permission to do whatever He wants with us when we choose forgiveness instead of bitterness. This is one of the most difficult steps of faith we will ever take. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, ‘Forgiveness is not an occasional act, it is a permanent attitude.’ Forgiveness should actually begin at the time of the offense. Forgiveness is the only way to follow God in faith.” It helps to take these four steps toward getting rid of the grudge.
