I question those Christians,
who say they love the Lord
and yet to forgive others
their hearts can't get on board.
They tithe and go to church,
sometimes they read their Bible
but to those who have hurt them
they still hold them accountable.
Forgiveness is an eleven-letter word,
that they know how to spell out
but to understand it's full meaning
they are full of hesitation and doubt.
They have chosen not to forget,
nor give to God their pain
to do so would mean to them
all their suffering would be in vain.
For deep in their souls,
they have become the judge
and to forgive others means
their hearts would have to budge.
And so they cling on to the past,
with hearts as cold as stone
instead of giving over their grief
to the One who judges from the throne.
I wonder if they ever think,
what if Jesus had thought this way?
I wonder what these Christians . . .
would then have to say.
King James Version
"And be ye kind one to another,
tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as
God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you."
