Forgiveness is one of the difficult things to do in your life . It is impossible to live in this planet without getting hurt, offended or rejected but learning how to respond properly is one of the basics of Christian Life.
The word "forgive" mean to pardon an offender. When we wrong someone, we seek his/her forgiveness in order for the relationship to continue. Although forgiveness might seem challenging but we have to do it for peace to reign.
Not long ago, some Boko Haram Terrorists, who surrendered to the Army asked Nigerians to forgive them for the atrocities they have committed. On hearing the news, a woman identified as Oluwaseun Sakaba said there will be no forgiveness for Boko Haram Terrorists, who killed my husband, his brother and mum
She explained that there will be no forgiveness for the Terrorists group for making many women to widows and children to be fatherless
However, the Bible says "If you forgive those who sin against you, God will forgive you but if you refuse to forgive others, God will not forgive your sins.
"Let all bitterness and anger be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, forgive one another as God forgave your sins"
The sin of un-forgiveness puts many people on the path to hell fire. If God can forgive our deepest sins, why can't we forgive others?
My Advise to Oluwaseun Sakaba is that she should forgive the Terrorists group, who have asked Nigerians to forgive them and allow God to do the rest.
