Today we are fasting from the thought that says: “If I forgive, I’ll be taken advantage of.”
It is very tempting to give into this false belief, but don’t give into that thinking. Forgiveness doesn’t mean tolerance. If someone is hurting you, you don’t remain a punching bag for their mistreatment.
If you’ve been abused, you don’t continue accepting it. Get in a safe place.
But, all of us need to trust God, regardless of what has been done to us.
