I find that although this Poem has Truth Sue, sadly it’s also tainted with bitterness and resentment, we need to forgive to be forgiven, it’s not that God does not want to forgive us but we Block His forgiveness as does all unrepentant Sin. Heart repentance means also choosing not to Sin and so being empowered not to.
Mark 11:25-26 And when ye stand praying, forgive if ye have ought against any that your Father also which is in Heaven may forgive you your trespasses but if ye do not forgive neither will your Father which is in Heaven forgive your trespasses.(KJV)
Matthew 5:43-45 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the Children of your Father which is in Heaven: for He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

Hi Anne: I don’t see bitterness or resentment in this at all. What I see is reaching out and saying we are loved and forgiven and we are not what abuse did to us. I see hope and encouragement. As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse maybe I can see more there because of having to heal through that pain and having to forgive what many feel are “unforgivable sins.” The author of this poem is a survivor. I do appreciate your perspective, I just don’t agree with it. Thank you for reading and your input. Blessings to you.
Yes as I shared Sue, there is Truth in this Poem but when we forgive we also stop putting those who hurt us down, we stop name calling and we don’t highlight their weaknesses and shortcomings, we all have these and when we critically judge others for theirs, we are judging ourselves, perhaps the link below will explain it better, but to condense when we forgive we also Love.
Blessings – Anne.
