~Friday for Friends~
Continuing the Friday for Friends post series, we have the word "absolve". It means "to set free or release from duties, guilt or penalty" (Webster's dictionary, 1993).
Sometimes a friend does something that we think we will never forgive of forget. They hurt us, so they should feel guilty right? But there's also time for forgiveness, for letting things go. No matter how hard it is.
Because we have been forgiven so much more. By a perfect God who loves us.
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:32 (NIV)
It won't always be easy, but with God's help we can forgive.
