How do we respond when someone has hurt us deeply. Someone I care for deeply was asked to leave her adult child’s home at their one event together during the holidays. She is aware that the fracture may be permanent.
Blame, facts, and faults are not what is important. Though humans focus on those trying to justify themselves. Grace, mercy, and forgiveness are what is important. Asking God to show us our sin, yes, I said sin, confessing it to God gives us the freedom to let go. Grace and mercy to give that other person freedom to act as they wish, positive or negative. Leave it at that. We really have no other choice. And God has done that with us.
