Stuff Christians Like on "Forgiving people who didn't apologize":
Me: "Hey, can we talk for a minute? I know things have been kind of awkward between us lately and our friendship is strained a little, but I want to be honest with you today. I want you to know that I forgive you."
Friend: "Forgive me? For what?"
Me: "I'd rather not go into the details and reopen the wound, but that thing you did to me a few weeks ago. I forgive you for that. It's important to me that you know I have erased that debt in my heart."
Friend: "I have no idea what you're talking about. Did I do something?"
Me: "I'm a Christian and I'm called to forgive people and love my enemies. So even though it still stings a little, I want you to know we're cool now."
Friend: "Wait a second, we're enemies? Whoa. When did that happen?"
Me: "Stop, just stop. Just know that I forgive you. Someday maybe you'll understand. Come here, let's hug it out."
Friend: "Don't touch me."
Me: "I forgive that too. You can keep pushing me away, but I'm just going to keep loving on you." .... [more]
Stuff Christians Like: #579. Forgiving people who didn't apologize.
