Romans 12:19, "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..." We have all heard, "to err is human, to forgive Divine". If I try to forgive under my own power (the flesh) it never will be done! Because deep down I am saying, GOD will give them what they have coming. But remember, GOD is the loving and forgiving GOD; so HIS dealing with those who have offended us may not (and in my case, never is) be what we think should be done. So do I forgive when when I "play act"? You know when your parents made you "say sorry" which really had no repentance at all. Then it carried into later life say the words but not mean them. Forgiveness is DIVINE, I believe it happens instantaneously through love. I cannot think of anyone that I need to forgive (and it is not my Parkinson's for lack of memory) but I can read you a long list of those I have offended. I am blessed to be forgiven! I think I will just focus on the Mercy GOD and GOD'S children have give me; instead of who I need to forgive. It's Instant, It's Divine, IT'S THE EASIEST THING TO DO!
