Forgiving As God Forgives

17 September 2023  ( 24rd Sunday in Ordinary Time )

[ Ecclesiasticus 27:30-28:7 , Romans 14:7-9 , Matt 18:21-35 ]

The hyperbole used by Jesus means that our forgiveness to those who have hurt us should be limitless and boundless; it seems easy on paper but hard to put into practice what Jesus has taught. God requires us to forgive those who have hurt us but He does not require us to reconcile with the person if they don’t wish to. Forgiveness also does not mean forgetting what happened; we don’t need to pretend that we are not hurt, the human mind is amazing, but it does not have the ability to forget at will. Forgiveness is not denial. Forgiving someone does not mean that they are exempted from the consequences of their crime. Someday, the person who hurt you grievously will eventually have to come face-to-face with God’s justice at the end of time, it also means that they would eventually have to face the consequences of breaking the law of the land. Let us then forgive and pray for others especially those who have hurt us from the heart just as God has forgiven us without limits.
