Forgiveness is useful to a group of people forming a body, like for example you and I.
The Bible often refers to Believers as a body. Now, when our physical bodies become sick, like for instance headaches..... We don’t cut off our heads to cure the problem, rather we administer medicine to the head. Forgiveness pretty much works the same way.
Where there is offence between people, administering forgiveness .....just like Aspirin for a headache, will help keep the relationship going. Withholding forgiveness is like cutting off the head to solve the problem. The body dies, ....the relationship fails.
Let’s keep up the practice of the art of forgiving each other.
