What do I mean?

It may be difficult to forget, but forgiving is not the same as forgetting. Forgiveness is a choice. Here’s what scripture says:

“Be ANGRY, and yet DO NOT SIN; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and do not give the devil an opportunity.” (Eph. 4:26-27)

At the end of the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus warns us, “For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.” (Matthew 6:14-15)

He who hates his brother is in darkness, and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because darkness has blinded his eyes. (1 John 2:11)

Again, forgiveness is not forgetting. Forgetting may be a result, the fruit, of forgiving, but it’s not the means of forgiveness.
