When a person does NOT forgive you for something, the best thing to do is forgive them for NOT forgiving YOU.
When you were wronged (everyone is offended at one time or another), did you look to see WHY the person did what they did? Did you forgive them?
Did you try to walk in their shoes and understand them?
Did you go to other people they respected and try to get things taken care of by hopefully having them try to talk sense into them?
When things did not go right, as sometimes they will, did you forgive them?
God gives mercy to those who are merciful........ they are blessed.
Lets take a look at blessings a person will get, according to the bible, if they are merciful in their life:
Lord, with the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright; Psalm 18:25
The merciful man doeth good to his own soul: but he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh. Proverbs 11:17
Lets see what God asks of us in life ~~ to uphold what Jesus teaches: (These verses are hundreds of years BEFORE Jesus lived on earth)
Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: so shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man. Proverbs 3:3-4
He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour. Proverbs 21:21
Therefore return to your God! Hold fast to love and mercy, to righteousness and justice, and wait [expectantly] for your God continually! Hosea 12:6
He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? Micah 6:8
Here are some new testament verses to give you guidance, encouragment and warning:
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, pretenders (hypocrites)! For you give a tenth of your mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected and omitted the weightier (more important) matters of being a disciple--doing right and being just, merciful and loyal. These you ought [particularly] to have done, without neglecting the others. Matthew 23:23(It looks like even if we give money to the poor and do other good works, we STILL need to forgive others...)
But love your enemies and be kind and do good [doing favors so that someone derives benefit from them] and lend, expecting and hoping for nothing in return but considering nothing as lost and despairing of no one; and then your recompense (your reward) will be great (rich, strong, intense, and abundant), and you will be sons of the Most High, for He is kind and charitable and good to the ungrateful and the selfish and wicked. So be merciful (sympathetic, tender, responsive, and compassionate) even as your Father is [all these]. Luke 6:35-36
Clothe yourselves therefore, as God's own chosen ones (His own picked representatives), [who are] purified and holy and well-beloved [by God Himself, by putting on behavior marked by] tenderhearted pity and mercy, kind feeling, a lowly opinion of yourselves, gentle ways, [and] patience [which is tireless and long-suffering, and has the power to endure whatever comes, with good temper].
Be gentle and forbearing with one another and, if one has a difference (a grievance or complaint) against another, readily pardoning each other; even as the Lord has [freely] forgiven you, so must you also [forgive]. Colossians 3:12-13
So speak and so act as [people should] who are to be judged under the law of liberty [the moral instruction given by Christ, especially about love]. For to him who has shown no mercy the judgment [will be] merciless, but mercy [full of glad confidence] exults victoriously over judgment. What is the use (profit), my brethren, for anyone to profess to have faith if he has no [good] works [to show for it]? Can [such] faith save [his soul]? James 2:12-14
Well....maybe some of us have a LOT to think about...... I know at times I struggle with being merciful, but when I see how much God and His Son (Our Messiah) Jesus wants me to be merciful because of the blessings that result, and the fact that they are glorified by it ~~ THEN it is MUCH easier to do.
