• “Experience has taught me that the Shepherd is far more willing to show His sheep the path than the sheep are to follow. He is endlessly merciful, patient, tender, and loving. If we, His stupid and wayward sheep, really want to be led, we will without fail be led. Of that I am sure.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Have You Forgiven? by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 11/24

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Does the thought of some particular person cause you to react emotionally?

“I’ve forgiven her . . . all right?! Give me a break!”

Nancy: How can you know that you’ve truly forgiven someone who has hurt you? When you think of them, what’s the attitude of your heart? Do you feel:

  • An emotional churning?
  • A desire for revenge?
  • Is it hard to ask God to bless them?
  • Is it hard to see any of their good qualities?
  • Do you wish everyone knew their bad qualities?

If any of these are true, it’s likely that you haven’t really forgiven. The Bible tells us to “be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.” Would you release your offender to God? Would you choose to forgive?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
