sorry, I just ever understand these people

someone plans and commits an attack on you and yours... and afterwards while you’re dealing with the damage... you ‘forgive’ the attackers??


sorry... toss them into a slow moving glass grinder. that’s the only forgiveness I would give them

It’s a gift from God. If you take you troubles and pain to God, He will give you genuine peace.

Jesus said “my yoke is easy and my burden is light”.
