Forgiving someone can be a difficult task. Jesus makes it quite clear that we are to forgive those who have wronged us, but it’s a tough thing to do, especially depending on how deeply hurt we have been. I know I struggle with accepting an apology sometimes. It might be easy to say the words, “Yes, I forgive you”, but to actually feel that in your heart and let go of any hurt or angry feelings might be quite hard to do.
This video provides an amazing example of forgiveness. I imagine that many people who watch it, like myself, may wonder if we’d be able to do the same. This woman was raped by multiple men and conceived a child. Not only does she respect the life God created within her, despite the terrible circumstances, she has been able to forgive the men who did such a horrible thing to her.
