Question: What does forgiveness mean?
Are you carrying around a wound? For your own sake, you must forgive the person who offended you. Forgiveness is a beautiful gift from God, but many of us don’t really understand that forgiveness simply means to release, set free. When you don’t forgive you are like a bird locked in a cage. You need to be released in order to be all God designed you to be. Forgive that person holding you captive—not because they’ve humbled themselves and asked you to, not because they deserve it—but because you deserve it.
