You’re not going to get through today without hurting those around you. You’re also not going to get through today without being hurt by those around you. That’s why God links the two sides of forgiveness. Forgive others when they hurt you. Really forgive them. Truly forgive them. Forgive yourself when you hurt others. Really forgive yourself. Truly forgive yourself. If you can’t, you’re going to carry around a lot of unnecessary junk that will weigh you down. If you can, you’ll begin to experience the abundant life Jesus talks about.
