Forgiveness is a strange thing. What makes someone want to be forgiving? Is it a feeling of love or care for the other person that they can forgive and move on? Different people are going to have different levels of forgiveness. There are some that will continue to forgive those around them for the things that they have done to hurt over and over again. Then there is another group of people that are going to take a long time to come around and others that may never. God teaches us all in the Bible that we are to forgive others as he has forgiven us. But what does it take to reach that? How do we put things behind us and just move on treating that person the same? Do we ever really treat that person the same? How much trust and faith can we put into them the way that God has trust and faith in us?
