Love is forgiveness
Last time, we talked about how love is something you give without asking for anything in return.
Love, like a jewel with many facets, doesn’t end with just one facet. Every single aspect of it is a representation of love.
This time I am going to talk about how love is “forgiveness”.
Forgiveness means not judging the other person’s sins and wrongs
The word “forgiveness” means not judging the other person for the sins and mistakes they have committed. Accept the other person’s mistakes without blaming them. That’s what forgiveness is, and it’s a word that’s often used in Christianity.
Love means not judging the other person’s sins and wrongs in that way. Don’t judge people, accept them for who they are. That is what love is all about.
Why love is forgiveness
Why is love a forgiveness and not a judgment? This is because the God of the universe, who is love itself, never judges, but continues to forgive infinitely.
We humans are not perfect beings, but developing beings who are growing and evolving towards God. Sometimes we stray from the path of being a child of God, and sometimes we sin in the wrong way.
But no matter how much we fail, God will never condemn us for it.
“My children. I don’t care if you fail, I want you to work hard and use it as food for your own growth.”
As such, God is warmly watching over us like a parent. There is no sense of judgment there at all.
There isn’t a single person who hasn’t committed a sin or a mistake
I don’t think there is a single person, large or small, who has ever lived without sin. I think everyone has done something bad once or twice in their life when they look back on it in their mind.
I’m not just talking about getting caught by the police or anything like that, but to put it bluntly, it’s against the idea of love. We’ve all done one or two things that have hurt or caused someone to suffer.
More to the point, it’s not just about this life. In past lives, there may have been sins or mistakes that were made. Human beings are not given life as a fleeting life that ends only once, but as a soul that will live on forever. There is no one who has not committed a single sin or mistake in the course of his or her life.
If that’s the case, am I the kind of person who can judge the other person’s sins and mistakes when I’ve made similar mistakes myself? Now that I’ve cleared that stage, I may be the one who has finished learning. However, if you judge people because of this, there is no love in it. Rather, as a person who understands the pain and hardship of such a person, it is true love to accept it, to be there for them, and to support them.
However, even though we have sinned, we were never created to be “children of sin”. We were created to be ” children of God” and as we grow and evolve, we will make mistakes and failures.
Although Christianity sometimes refers to us as the “children of sin”, Jesus Christ never says that we are the ” children of sin”. Jesus also says that man is the “children of God”. I think that’s the part you shouldn’t be mistaken about.
Don’t judge people. To make sure that you are not judged
We have to take responsibility for what we’ve done. In the “Law of Cause and Effect”, which states that your actions will return to you, you must assume the consequences yourself.
So, in a sense, it could be said that there is no need to judge.The consequences of such a sin will be something we will accept for ourselves. It is never something that others can take the place of.
“Don’t judge people. That you may not be judged,” said Jesus Christ.
That’s exactly what the Law of Cause and Effect is talking about. If you judge, now you are going to be judged by someone else.
Continue to forgive infinitely
God has forgiven us long ago and will continue to forgive us forever from now on.
Again, love is forgiveness. It’s about accepting yourself and others as they are, without judging them.
