The Bible calls on us not to earnestly remember the former things (Isaiah 43:18). When you “earnestly” remember something, you purposefully bring it to your consciousness. That’s especially problematic when it comes to forgiveness. After all, Jesus said that we’re to forgive completely (Matthew 18:21-22). That doesn’t mean you call a truce; it’s a matter of total amnesty. Leave it, drop it, let it go. Forgive others as you would like God to forgive you (Matthew 6:12).
