It can be very hard to forgive someone who has hurt or offended us. Actually, I can forgive someone who hurt me much more easily than someone who hurt one of my children. But the Lord readily forgives me. I am expected, as His chid, to follow His example. The thing is that when we hold to resentment, we are giving the perpetrator of the hurtful deed control over us. Would we rather be in the control of the Holy Spirit? Forgiveness shifts the power from the one who hurt us to the One who comforts us. That’s a much better place to rest.
