So then, my question would be: is the person who hurt us truly sorry?
Words can be meaningless to the person hurting us. They think a little "song and dance" of how sorry they are will bring them back into our lives, but in their heart, they have no intention of changing. And while some are genuinely sorry for what they did, their true nature just cannot change. They go back like a rubber band, snapping right back to their previous nature. So then, how do we know when someone is truly sorry? I guess that's up for interpretation. There's no black and white answer on this.
I would love to ask this question to those who read my blog.
How do you forgive, and how often do you forgive?
Also, if you decide to not forgive, what would be the ultimate offense?
Lack of trust?
Do you forgive seventy times seven?
