PODCAST: Fighting Fair Part 4 - The Necessity of Forgiveness
Working through conflict in marriage is difficult enough on its own. It gets even harder when one or both spouses are harboring a grudge. If you hold on to a hurt or a wrong suffered long enough, bitterness and emotional disconnect are inevitable.
In Matthew 6:14-15, Jesus tells us something that we don't like to hear. He tells his followers that if they are unwilling to forgive others, then He will not forgive us. Heavy stuff indeed.
Whether the hurt you have suffered is from a one-time event or from a long pattern of sin, withholding forgiveness makes things worse. Sure, there are some parameters we must set, but we must be working towards grace. Today's podcast can help you to get there.
