Forgive and Forget

Because you’ve been forgiven, you can forgive.
It’s really difficult to be in a relationship with someone who says they’ve forgiven you but that they’ve never forgotten. Especially when they keep bringing it up!
But God is different! The Bible says that when God forgives our sins, he both forgives and forgets.
This means that from the moment he’s forgiven us, God treats us for all intents and purposes as if we had never ever done wrong. Love keeps no record of wrongs. It’s in that sense that God forgets.
But it can take us a long time to heal from the wounds that someone has inflicted on us. We all have memories.
What you can do is to “forgive and forget” in the sense of deciding that you will choose to forgive the person who has wronged you for the sake of Jesus Christ, and move on with your life.
It doesn’t happen right away. It’s a process.
Remember: Because you’ve been forgiven, you can forgive.
