How to Forgive…When You Don’t Feel Like It
When someone hurts us, our natural response is to strike back. Rather than let go, we cling to our rocks of resentment, our boulders of bitterness. The result? We struggle under the weight of unforgiveness.
Though we know God has called us to forgive others, we find ourselves asking:
- What if it hurts too much to forgive?
- What if the other person isn’t sorry?
- How can I let someone off the hook for doing something so wrong?
Biblical counselor June Hunt has been there herself, enabling her to speak from experience as she offers biblical help and hope with heartfelt compassion. If you’ve been pinned down under a landslide of pain, here’s how to find true freedom through forgiveness.
“You can always trust June
Hunt to take us right to God’s Word for answers to tough issues. How to
