We, in the flesh, tend to not be forgetful of those who have wronged us. When someone does us wrong, most of us will tell everyone who will listen, talk about it for days, months, even years, won’t let it go, or let the past stay where it is.
Bringing up those things from the past, keeps us from moving forward in our lives. Most importantly, we don’t want the person who has wronged us, to forget what they did. We bring it up to them every chance we get. Therefore, condemning them.
We are to be forgiving towards others. If we forgive others who have wronged us, God will forgive us also. But if we don’t forgive them, God will not forgive us.
God forgives us of our sins and doesn’t remember them anymore. This is one area that God has amnesia. When others have wronged us, we need to be more like God, and get a case of amnesia. Forgive the person who has wronged you. Forget what has happened in the past, remember it no more, let it go, and move forward in your life.
