Forgiveness lies at the heart of Christian life…  What is forgiveness?  The word literally means “to let go” or “to send away.”  Forgiveness is when you release to the Lord any bitterness that you might feel you have a right to have towards someone else and let God handle the matter in His own way.

Forgiveness is to give up the right to get even, or hold in debt, someone who has wronged you.  Forgiveness does not want revenge.  Forgiveness is to set someone free from an obligation to you that is a result of a wrong done against you (may not change the situation but it changes your attitude.)  Forgiveness is an attitude, not an action.
