Remember, though, that, although God understands temptation, He only forgives sin when the sinner comes to understand his sin, feels genuine contrition, repents, and actually asks the Lord for forgiveness. For us to forgive those who don't ask us for forgiveness, who haven't genuinely repented of their hurtful acts towards us, isn't necessarily godly. It can be something that just sets us up for more victimization. And, God does not want us to be victims, He wants us to be victors. We might be able to understand sins against us; but, sometimes forgiveness, as always with vengeance, can only be left to God. Reconciliation can't be achieved unless both parties involved genuinely want, and want to work toward, reconciliation.
