Influence 2017: Session 4

This session from Dr Robi was without exaggerating, phenomenal. 

Sharing about what forgiveness is and what it isn’t. 

It is making a CHOICE: we like to hold on to our pain, that it feels good to be bad. But we must choose to let it go. 

It requires a SACRIFICE on our part. 

It’s TRUSTING God to take care of the justice to avenge, that He knows what He is doing. 

It’s a GIFT given even if undeserved: only when you give it as a gift do you understand that the gift is for you. 

It is NOT an EXCUSE for what people did to you, for their behaviour. 

It doesn’t mean we have to BEFRIEND them. 

It doesn’t mean we have to continue to be ABUSED by the perpetrator. 

It doesn’t require us to FORGET what is being forgiven: instead the memory can be a great hallmark of forgiveness and be part of our story.

  1. Yes sounds like a great session and a very powerful message. Forgiveness really does free you up to live your life more fully and enables you to give of yourself to others.
