There are so many of us (men and women) who have grown up without our biological fathers in our lives. Some have come back to make amends while others have went about their lives like we've never existed. Read our latest post, about how my absent father now realizes he needs me, even though he wasn't there for me. #blackswhoblog #blogger #melaninbloggers #fatherless #relationships #family #fathers #children #internationalwomensday #bloggersoc #blackcommunity #life #society #experience
I see this type of quote a lot, but it isn't biblical. Being sorry (repentance for an offense) is required for true forgiveness to be granted. Luke 17:3, Matthew 18:15 Letting go & letting God handle an offender is often necessary because an apology or change of heart will never come; however, true forgiveness is being able to go forward in a relationship as if the wrong never happened. God only requires this if repentance occurs. He doesn't require us to be okay with continued mistreatment.
