Forgiveness is a Choice
Although Joseph endured many, many horrible circumstances he knew and acknowledged God was with him. As a result God favored him.
It all has to do with our attitude. Attitude of a great person = forgiveness.
Joseph had every opportunity for revenge but did as God wanted. Don't choose the easy way out, choose what is necessary.
Give forgiveness when you have a God that loves you unconditionally. Now.
God is on our side. God doesn't want us to forget the offense, but to forgive even though we remember the offense.
If you are wounded from prior hurts, and have not forgiven the hurt, you are a wounded soldier for God. God does not need wounded soldiers, he needs us to be well so we are able to help each other.
Forgiveness is a choice? No, forgiveness is a must.
