We’ve all been hurt. Because of that hurt, life can be very difficult. But Jesus has given us a gift. That gift is called forgiveness.
In today’s gospel, Jesus tells the disciples and us about the enormous gift of forgiveness that God gives us. Forgiveness becomes the key to mending broken relationships.
This is an important distinction. If someone says, “I’m sorry” but we don’t respond with forgiveness the relationship remains broken. Yes, it can be very hard to forgive. Sometimes we need help from a counselor or trusted friend to help us work through it. It can even take years. But forgiveness is about freedom from the burden of the hurt.
