Memories and Compassion by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/29/11

 

“I know that I’m supposed to forgive and forget. And God has helped me to forgive—but forget? That’s a different story when someone has hurt you really bad.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: We’re called to forgive others as God has forgiven us. God is all-knowing, so He can’t forget anything. But when He forgives, He promises never to hold our sins against us again. We’re called to do the same.

Forgiveness doesn’t necessarily mean that we forget every painful memory, but that can actually be good. Those memories can help us be tenderhearted and compassionate toward others who hurt.

There may be a lot of hurt in your past. But if you let Him, God can use those memories for His glory. You may even be able to use those very experiences to help someone else who’s been wounded.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
