“Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,’ says the Lord.”
Charles Haddon Spurgeon, the great British preacher, said, “Let us go to Calvary to learn how we may be forgiven; and then let us linger there to learn how we may forgive.”
We need God’s forgiveness because we have sinned against Him. And as we spend time at the cross of Calvary, we’ll learn more about forgiving others.
We all get hurt in life. Husbands are going to hurt wives. Wives are going to hurt husbands. Parents are going to hurt children, and children are going to hurt parents. Friends are going to hurt friends. That is just human nature, and it happens both intentionally and unintentionally.
