we need to forgive and move on

He who covers a transgression seeks love,
But he who repeats a matter separates friends. (Proverbs 17:9)
To keep bringing up something that has been forgiven, well . . . has never really been forgiven at all!  It continues to alter relationships. It continues to grow and cause pain.

True forgiveness is difficult. As humans, we want others to know we have been hurt. We want someone to feel our pain. We want justice . . . even revenge. This is not of God! Imagine if God was this way with our sin . . . .

If we have not forgiven someone, or perhaps someone has not forgiven us, either way we need to forgive and move on! Perhaps we need to forgive ourself!

Love holds no grudges nor does it continue to bring up past faults and hurts. (1 Corinthians 13:5) Move forward in 2019 . . . in LOVE!
