Show my children that keeping score is a sign of immaturity. Show them that forgiveness is defined by their actions… and that if they truly forgive someone who has offended or hurt them… their actions towards that person will communicate that fact. Rather than withdraw their spirit and retreat into a protective shell around those who have brought pain to their lives or rather than boil over with anger in their presence… my children will have the courage to ACT in love towards them… offering patience and acts of kindness. They don’t have to stay in relationship, that requires earned trust, but they must be able to smile and have a genuine heart of forgiveness towards the offenders. Mt 17, 1Co 13:4
