The last in the series of "A New Season of Mission- Everyday Missions" "Real Forgiveness" Forgiveness does NOT mean that you are giving approval of what they did, Excusing what they did, or Justifying what they did. Forgiveness does require you to do certain things. They aren't always easy. Colossians 3:13 says: Make allowance for each others faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.
