UNFORGIVENESS

“I don’t hate her.” “Maybe not. But isn’t unforgiveness the seed of hatred? Unforgiveness breeds bitterness, and bitterness can only lead to hate.” Heather Burch, In the Light of the Garden

  1. But that perhaps leaves the question of how to dtermine if the repentance is sincere..OF COURSE GOD KNOWS BUT IS THERE MEANS BY WHICH THE FORGIVER CAN DISCERN SUCH…

    CONSIDER LUKE 17
    3Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother shall trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he shall repent forgive him. 4And if he shall trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day shall turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.
    WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE 7TH TRESPASS AND HOW DOES ONE DTERMINE THAT A BROTHER HAS TRESPASSED…ER AND WHAT ABOUT SISTERS..?HMMM?

  2. THO one might offer forgiveness, the other cannot receive if they don’t properly repent

    When Esau finally woke up to some extent and realized what he had forsaken, he made a half-hearted attempt to retrieve it. Just because he sought for it with tears does not indicate sincerity or true remorse. He found no place for repentance. He bitterly regretted, but he did not repent. He selfishly wanted God’s blessings, but he did not want God
