How to Forgive Everyone


WHAT TO DO WITH OFFENSES


Choose to FORGIVE everyone.
"Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, 'Lord, how many times must I forgive my brother when he sins against me. Up to seven times?' Jesus answered, 'Not seven times, but seventy times seven!'" (Matt. 18:21-22) WHY SHOULD I?

HOW TO FORGIVE EVERYONE

  1. Let God settle the SCORE.
    "Dear friends, never avenge yourselves. Leave that to God. For it is written, 'I will take vengeance; I will repay those who deserve it,' says the Lord." (Rom. 12:19)

  2. Don't REHEARSE and NURSE the offense.
    "I am focusing all my energies on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead." (Phil. 3:13)

  3. Return good for EVIL.
    "...do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who mistreat you." (Luke 6:27-28)
