The Cost of Forgiveness – Contagious Forgiveness – Week 3

Forgiveness is not…

  • Understanding
  • Forgetting
  • Avoidance
  • Acceptance
  • Getting away with it

Forgiveness COMPLEMENTS justice; it does not REPLACE it.

Forgiveness will cost us…

  • Our RESENTMENT
  • The right to the CONSEQUENCES of our forgiveness.
  • Our sense of JUSTICE.

Two burdens of Forgiveness:

  1. The HURT stays with us.
  2. The INJUSTICE stays with us.

II Corinthians 2:5-8
