So, I’m considering running a little experiment. I’ve noticed over my short lifetime that people are not nearly as sincere as they proclaim to be.
Especially here in America, we’ve developed this list of cliché sayings and questions that we spew out at the right times in order to seem interested, sincere, intelligent, or passionate. But the question is, how many of us really care?
In an effort to help all you lovers out there today I am talking about the most important things to know about love, dating, and relationships, before going on your Valentine dinner. You’ll certainly want to hear this before you head out.
We all know the “church-talk.” Forgiveness is about your freedom, and we are commanded to forgive, and forgiveness releases the other person from hurting you any longer.
But this post isn’t really about forgiveness.
I remember a time where I was going through some very difficult emotions regarding what someone had done to me. Everything I felt was justified. In fact, I felt like, if I took the time to count, I would have reached 490 instances of forgiveness (70 x 7) that I had given to this person.
They had hurt me over and over and over again, and I had turned the other cheek, the other arm, the other ear, the other everything. Over and over again. Eventually it came to a climax. They did something to me, that I finally decided NOT to forgive them.
