God is all love and forgivness...
Unfortunately, not ture about most of us...
When I was younger I often felt the anger/pain of what I considered unjust actions toward me...and how unfair it was and how one day they would get theirs...afterall, they are the evil ones...
Now that I am older and hopefully, wiser, I sometimes feel only saddness and sorrow that that person behaved in that way or whatever...I just don’t take it so personsal...however, the ability to completely forgive and forget are still sometimes out of my grasp...but I don’t feel ill will and I don’t hope that they suffer dire consequences...so I suppose I have grown spiritually, somewhat...but I still cringe sometimes when I say the Lord’s Prayer and recite "...and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive others"...I am thankful God is what He is because how could I be forgiven when there are times I harbor thoughts of those who have hurt me or mine...
