What does forgiveness mean?

19 Jan

WOW!!! What does this mean, does it mean that you get to ignore what happened to you? Does forgiveness mean that we can look past something that was done?

Wikipedia defines forgiveness as the process of concluding resentment, indignation or anger as a result of a perceived offense, difference or mistake, and/or ceasing to demand punishment or restitution.
The Oxford English Dictionary defines forgiveness as ‘to grant free pardon and to give up all claim on account of an offense or debt’.

Forgiveness is honestly owning up to your wrong doing really truly being sorry and working out a solution to make it better.

Genesis 45

Blessings to you and yours until tomorrow
