Things we confuse with forgiveness

It is easy to conflate forgiveness with forgetting, trust and justice. It is powerful to differentiate them from one another. Think about these statements to help.

To forgive does NOT mean

  • To forget that we were hurt. It does mean we can operate free of them.

  • To trust. Trust is earned.

  • Justice. Justice sets things right in our world. Forgiveness sets things right in you. They both matter.
