There is a difference between forgiveness and reconciliation.
We need to figure out what our part of the situation is or was, own it, and then figure out what their part is or was and let that go.
We are to have a forgiving heart.
Jesus was able to go through his crucifixion due to his relationship with God. And we can be given the strength we need to forgive using the relationship we have with the Heavenly Father.
Jesus forgave those involved with the crucifixion for they did not know what the do.
If you wont forgive the sins of others, the Lord will not forgive your sins
forgive and you will be forgiven
Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”[a] And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.
But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
“Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
