God has commended us in Eph 4:32: “And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”

Forgiving your spouse is not saying that you are not hurt, that you approve of what your spouse did or said nor is it saying that the incident didn't happen. What forgiveness does for you and your spouse is:

  1. Release you from holding on to the hurt
  2. Release them from keeping a record of your spouse hurtful incidents
  3. Release your spouse from receiving hurtful remarks and actions from YOU

But is this level of forgiveness earned or expected? Should your spouse automatically be forgiven or should they earn your forgiveness.

Keisha Hodges will join in the discussion to discuss forgiving  your spouse the Godly way.
