How to forgive?
How to forgive?
If we truly are Jesus’ followers we can do it like he did.
Though we betrayed him and were unfaithful to him, He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds we have been healed (1Peter 2:24).
Let hate leave your heart. If its hate that grows within! Then find a reason to love them. If you can't find a reason, then seek God! Let God into your heart. You have to really want to love them. Without love, how can we forgive?
Jesus was Jewish, so even at his last day he asked The Almighty: ''please forgive them, for they don't know what they are doing''.

1. It's not written that Jesus always forgave, also here it's not claimed.
2. He asked the Almighty, there is nothing written that The Almighty forgave here.
3. We should try to forgive, but it's not always possible or practical. If the other person doesn't ask for forgiveness, then there might be no connection to forgiving him/her. It was a process, If we do something wrong, we first have to go to that person who was mistreated ask forgiveness and find a way to recompensate, and then ask The Almighty if we can have forgiveness, and then not to do it next time. It has to be a prosses of learning.
4. Not to forgive somebody is not always connected to hate. The main commandment is not to keep a grudge.
5. We realy should try to forgive though, but if it is out of our own strenght what might be close to pride and having a better position like ''I (with a big capital I) forgive you'', it might not be honoust. If people say it just because of the commandment ''to forgive'', it might be o.k. but also not that honoust.

Good luck with finding a way.
