How do you truly forgive someone who has hurt you?

"Forgive" is a financial term as well as a spiritual term, that simply means to cancel the debt. The person recognizes the debt as such and makes the internal personal decision to release the offender from his/her indebtedness.
Forgiveness is often misunderstood. It is significantly different and often confused with such things as ignoring the offense, trying to forget it and reconciliation of the relationship. The reality is, the impact from the offense will have to be considered for the past, present and the inevitable future. Choosing to forgive is a personal, conscious and powerful choice of the will and you may have to ask the Lord to help you to truly forgive. Choosing to release the offender from his or her indebtedness is to be like the Lord Himself (Matthew 6:12; Matthew 18:21-35). & blessings
