Every marriage goes through difficult seasons. Some are harder than others. There will be times when we let each other down. It’s in those moments that we need to do our best to forgive one another as quickly as we can. This won’t be easy, but it is necessary to pursue healing and restoration. Forgiving someone doesn’t mean that we are saying what they did is okay or that it didn’t hurt us; it just means that we are willing to move forward and pursue healing over retaliation. Forgiveness is a choice, and both spouses must actively choose to forgive one another each and every day. When we do this, more peace and understanding will be present in our marriage and family.
