God is practical and wants what is best for us. The command to forgive is part of God’s desire for the very best for us. The value of forgiveness is primarily for the victim rather than the perpetrator. A lack of forgiveness halts healing and wholeness. Forgiveness doesn’t diminish or ignore the sin against us. Forgiveness means finding freedom to have better things on the forefront of our minds. We still remember the event to protect ourselves in the future, to learn from it, and to creatively move forward in life as a victor instead of a victim.
