🧡LOVE KEEPS NO RECORDS OF WRONGS🧡
One cannot TRULY love somebody and at the same time hold the wrongs they may have done in the past, against them. There is a distinction between remembering events from the past and holding things against your partner. So often, people say they love each other, but, as soon as one gets angry, out comes the dossier of your past transgressions! Accusations fly, painful memories are dredged up, and bygones are no longer bygones. This is not love and it is certainly damaging to a relationship. Some partners want their transgressions to be forgiven or even ignored, but will hold on to their partner’s transgressions with a vice-like grip. True love forgives and refuses to keep track of personal slights, hurts or wrongdoings. True love decides, “I forgive you for the wrong and we will work together to move forward together.” The focus of love is not one’s own pain, but the needs of the two that have become one. The relationship. Where true love reigns, it is crowned by forgiveness & forbearance. Holding on to wrongs keeps you in chains, ultimate freedom is letting go. Let us not keep a record of wrongs but instead KEEP A GRATITUDE JOURNAL OF THE THINGS OUR PARTNERS DO THAT ARE PLEASING. You’ll see how God blesses you with even abundantly more to be grateful for.
