I forgive you

Forgiveness does NOT mean an automatic second chance. Forgiveness does not equal trust. Forgiveness means that I have stopped picking at the wound in my heart. Forgiveness means that I do not hold your trespass against me, against you. I forgive you, but I also now know you better and will treat you according to that knowledge–not to punish you, forgiveness lets go of punishment. I will treat you according to my knowledge of you so that you can heal, so that you are not soon put in a situation where you will be tempted to commit the same trespass again.

This is good for you and safe for me. Forgiveness does not throw wisdom and common sense out the window. Sins have consequences, and forgiveness does not make those consequences go away.
