Forgiveness is not an emotion. It is a decision.

Forgiving doesn’t come easily or naturally for most of us. Many times when we find it especially hard to forgive we are emotionally hurt or emotionally tied to a situation. Emotions make a huge impact on our life but they must not be allowed to control our life, it must be Christ that controls our life. Jesus reminds us today of what He told Peter in Matthew 18:22, “Jesus said to him, ‘I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.” Father help me to humbly forgive friends, family, and strangers freely letting You control my life instead of being tossed around and restrained by my emotions. Amen.
