Relationships can hurt. Friends disappoint; loved ones betray our trust. People violate our rights, and we want justice, an apology, compensation. Sometimes we want pure, cold revenge.
What we want, however, isn’t always what we need, and God has offered us a better solution. This five-week devotional explores what it means to forgive, why we all need it, and how we can begin to practice it. Daily Bible readings, essays, and thought questions reveal the power and beauty of God’s remedy for our broken hearts and practical suggestions for healing our damaged relationships.
Hurt and angry, we may want revenge, but it’s forgiveness we need to bind our wounds, heal our broken hearts, and free us to love those who have injured us.
